ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



CONSTITUTION OF THE 
ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

PREAMBLE : We, the messengers of Missionary Baptist Churches 
in the County of Alexander, State of North Carolina, do hereby 
propose to establish and maintain the order and rules of a district 
Baptist Association in conformity to the following plan : 

Article I. NAME 

The name of the body shall be the Alexander Baptist Asso- 
ciation. 

Article II. PURPOSE 

The purpose of this Association shall be to counsel together 
for the enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom and for 
the promoting of unity and growth among the churches related to 
the Association. To this end the Association will cooperate with 
the North Carolina Baptist State Convention and the Southern 
Baptist Convention and their agencies in the work of Missions, 
Christian Education, and Social Service. 

Article III. MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1 : The Alexander Association shall be composed of 
the pastor and three messengers from each Missionary Baptist 
Church that voluntarily cooperates as the Alexander Baptist 
Association, the general officers of the Association, chairmen of 
standing committees, and the pastor and messengers from any 
church that may hereafter be recognized as a cooperating church 
by the Association. 

Section 2 : A cooperating church shall be defined as follows : 

a. One that shares the missionary spirit of the Association, 

b. Elects and sends messengers to the annual meeting, 

c. Contributes financially to the work of the Association each 
year, and 

d. Provides an annual report to the Association upon the forms 
provided by the Associational Clerk. 

Section 3: Any church may sever its working relationship 
with the Association at any time it chooses. Likewise, the Associa- 
tion may refuse to continue recognition of a church as a cooperating 
church when for two consecutive years without sufficient reason 
that church does not meet the stipulations stated in Section 2, or 
when for any other reason, approved by the Association in annual 
session, a church is considered by intent and action to be a liability 
to the fellowship and work of the Association. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Section 4: Churches desiring to relate themselves to the 
Association in its work and fellowship may do so by adhering to the 
following procedure : 

a. Make application to the Associational Fellowship Committee 
for recognition as a cooperating Baptist church, such appli- 
cation to be made at least three months before the annual 
meeting of the Association. 

b. Furnish the Fellowship Committee the information required 
in the annual letter of churches to the Association, plus 
such other information as the Committee may request for 
properly evaluating the application. 

c. Upon recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and 
approval by the Association in annual session a church may 
come under the watch care of the Association for a period 
of one year. At the end of one year of watch care relation- 
ship and upon recommendation of the Fellowship Committee 
and approval by the Association, a church may be recognized 
as a cooperating church eligible to all privileges and 
responsibilities of a church cooperating in the work of the 
Alexander Association. 

d. During the period of watch-care relationship a church shall 
meet the stipulations of Section 2 above. 

e. In the case of new churches which anticipate a working 
relationship with the Association, duly elected representa- 
tives of the proposed church shall consult with the Moder- 
ator and Fellowship Committee of the Association relative to 
the need for another church, its location, and its proposed 
ministry. Upon the recommendation of the Fellowship 
Committee the Executive Committee shall authorize such 
other assistance as is requested by the church or deemed 
necessary by the Executive Committee in developing a 
cooperating Missionary Baptist Church. 



Article IV. MEETINGS 

Section 1 : The Association shall meet annually on Wednesday 
after the second Sunday of October and continue for two days 
sessions or longer, as seems wise to the Committee on Order of 
Business — subject to the approval of the Association in session.

Section 2 : The associational year shall begin on October 1 
and continue through September 30. 

Section 3 : The Executive Committee shall act for the Asso- 
ciation between annual sessions. It shall meet quarterly and at any 
other time necessary to expedite associational business.

Committee would urge again that each church try to set this goal 
for itself. The above item XV is based on the hope that most 
churches will give 3% during the coming year. 

In addition to the $2,050.00 appropriation in the suggested 
budget, at the end of the year all unused funds appropriated for 
other objects would be placed in the special savings account de- 
signed to hasten the day when we can have a missionary office, 
home, and missionary.

RESOLUTION 

Whereas we are aware of the many evils of alcoholic bever- 
ages, and that liquor outlets are on the increase throughout our 
country, and 

Whereas the residents of Taylorsville have voted to establish 
a liquor outlet in said town. 

Be it therefore resolved that we the messengers to the Alex-

October 1966 in its seventy-ninth annual session do hereby register 
our strong protest to the establishment of the liquor outlet and 
the sale of alcoholic beverages. 

Be it further resolved that we encourage Christians of all 
faiths to look with dis-favor upon these evils, and that we do all 
in our power to eliminate these many evils including said outlets. 

Be it also resolved that this resolution be re-affirmed annually 
in our Associational meeting with any modifications deemed wise 
or necessary to the Committee on Resolutions as long as said 
stores remain in operation. 

Be it further resolved that this resolution be published in the 
local newspaper annually and that the cost of such publication be 
paid for out of our Associational funds.

HISTORY OF MOUNT HERMAN CHURCH 

Mount Herman Baptist Church was organized on October 9, 
1912, and the next day they sent A. L. Johnson and J. C. Johnson 
to present a request to the Alexander Association for membership. 
The church had seventy-two charter members, fifty-one from Three 
Forks, eleven from Liledoun, eight from Antioch, and two from 
Lebanon. 

The Association first met here in 1917 with L. Parks Gwaltney 
as pastor, Peter Johnson, church clerk, and L. C. Echerd, Sunday 
School Superintendent. It was a four day session and ended with 
"The brethren then engaged in an old-fashioned hand shake and 
the session closed with prayer." The historian reported that the 
church seemed to have prospered from the first and had had a good 
influence on the community in which it was situated. 

When we met here in 1950, a new brick building had been 
built in 1936, Church membership was 244, Sunday School enroll- 
ment was 168, and Training Union 76. 

The minutes of the last session here in 1958 listed charter 
members and pastors from the beginning to the Rev. Herman 
Johnson, who resigned in 1959. Ralph Yarborough served from 
October 1959 to 1963. The present pastor, Brother Charles Clark, 
came in April 1963. 



28 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Many improvements have been made to the church property. 
In 1964 the basement was remodeled and a new piano and a 
Hammond organ were purchased for the sanctuary- The parking 
lot was paved last year and a ball field for the young people made 
this year. 

A beautiful four bedroom parsonage was built in 1960 at a 
cost of $20,000 and is now debt free. 

Two young men of the church have been ordained : Clyde 
Kerley on October 11, 1964 and Ray Pennell on December 20, 1964. 

Lucy Echerd, Historian 



HISTORY OF STONY POINT BAPTIST CHURCH 

At the Alexander Association meeting in September 1910 
held at Dover, when new churches were called for, A. W. White, 
Church Clerk, Daniel Gryder, and N. P. Stout presented a letter 
seeking membership for Stony Point Baptist Church which had 
been organized on October 3, 1909 with twenty-three charter 
members. Seven new members were baptized the first year. The 
next year's associational minutes showed seventy-five in Sunday 
School. 

In 1914, when the Alexander Association first met with Stony 
Point church, the membership had increased to 90. By 1945, the 
next time we were here, the church had a full-time pastor, church 
membership was 379, Sunday School, Training Union, and W. M. U. 
were flourishing. 

The Association met here in 1951 and found the church 
sanctuary remodeled and the educational building enlarged. Under 
the leadership of Homer Good, the adjoining building was erected 
and named Bumgarner Hall in honor of the second pastor, Ernest 
V. Bumgarner. More improvements have been made to the facilities. 
The church office was remodeled last year and a new furnace 
installed. Other pastors and church information were brought 
up-to-date in the history submitted by my father when we met 
here in 1959, with the Rev. H. M. Cartner as pastor. Mr. Cartner 
left in March 1963 and was succeeded by John H. Scalf who came 
in July 1963 and resigned in February 1966. The present pastor, 
Henry C. Cook, Jr., accepted a call in July 1966. 

Two sons of the Norton family are in the ministry. Sydney 
Norton was ordained in June 1956, graduated at Southeastern 
Seminary last spring, and is now serving as associate pastor of 
Viewmont Baptist Church, Hickory. Wayne Norton was ordained 
November 1962 and is attending Southwestern Seminary.

ASSOCIATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Executive Committee of the association held its quarterly 
meetings on schedule during the past year. No special meetings 
were called. Meetings were opened with Scripture reading and 
prayer. The Moderator presided at each meeting, and the Clerk 
recorded the minutes. The following is a brief summary of the 
actions of the body: 

NOVEMBER 22, 1965: 

Reports were heard from the various organizational heads. 
Horace Moree read a note of thanks from Mrs. A. E. Watts for 
the chair and check given her at the Annual Association Meeting. 
The Moderator reminded the Committee of the action taken at the 
Annual Meeting relative to a revised constitution. A draft was to 
be presented to the Executive Committee at its June meeting. The 
trustees were encouraged to be looking for property for a future 
missionary's home. 

MARCH 22, 1966: 

Herman Johnson was recognized as the new pastor of Pleasant 
Hill. Department heads reported of activities during the past 
quarter. Action was taken to instruct the treasurer to place all 
monies over $500.00 into a savings account at Northwestern Bank. 

JUNE 20, 1966: 

It was decided that all outside speakers who came to address 
the associational meetings be paid $20.00 plus 10c per mile travel 
expense. The first draft of the proposed constitution was presented 
for study. A motion passed that all committee and representative 
reports for the Annual Associational Meeting be placed in a Book 
of Reports. 

SEPTEMBER 26, 1966: 

A report was given by the mission organizations relative to 
the Central Training School, stating that the major emphasis for 
this year's school, to be held October 24-27, would be on missions. 
The budget for 1967 was presented for study. The proposed Order 
of Business was submitted and approved for the Annual Meeting 
to be held October 12-13. The Executive Committee, by motion of 
Oliver Price, decided to use the old system of paying for church 
minutes out of the associational budget, but that each church state 
specifically how many they desired. 

The Clerk and Moderator have complete minutes of the above 
meetings on file. 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Baptist Hospital and Medical School are a center of healing 
for body, mind, and spirit, a center of training of medical personnel 
and Christian workers, and a center of scientific research for the 
advancement of medical care. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 31 

Without a vast amount of medical research, there would be no 
heart surgery today by which our lives are saved in our Baptist 
Hospital almost every week ; and the same would be true of almost 
every new method of treating us when we are sick. Without schools 
for the training of doctors, nurses, technicians and others, there 
soon would be no skilled persons in our hospitals or in our com- 
munities to care for us when illness comes. Without a staff of highly 
trained and experienced specialists and a vast amount of expensive 
specialized equipment, our Baptist Hospital could not offer the 
highly skilled medical care which is available to us when serious 
illness strikes and a fine medical center is needed. Another very 
important fact is that the skilled medical care of our Hospital is 
made available to people who need it and cannot pay for it. These 
important services are the work of our Medical Center in Winston- 
Salem. 

The kind of medical care provided by our Hospital is very 
expensive, and the Hospital has no choice but to ask full payment 
of all who can pay. The Hospital has been spending in free care 
for our people far more than it receives from our Mother's Day 
Offerings, the Cooperative Program, and all welfare agencies 
combined. This has caused the Hospital to run into debt the past 
two years and the same has been happening this year. Of course, 
the Hospital simply cannot continue to operate this way. Medicare 
is not going to change the situation greatly. Our people need to 
understand this and to recognize that we are going to have to 
provide much greater support if the Hospital is to continue to 
provide free service in the same measure for those who cannot pay 
for it. 

While some of our churches support the Hospital well indeed, 
most of them could do far more than they have been doing. We 
want to bring this to your attention, asking you to go back to your 
church and give this information to your people and help to lead 
them to give serious consideration to the Hospital's vital ministry 
and its urgent need.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES 

Reflection on the past year of life in our four Baptist Homes 
for the Aging is a reminder once again of the goodness of the Lord 
to us. We are constantly aware of the bountiful way in which He 
has blessed us, and this has been particularly true since our last 
report to the good people in our Baptist Associations. 

During this time we have ministered to 172 deserving older 
men and women. All of these have been blessed by the love gifts of 
North Carolina Baptists, through the Special Day offering received 
on the third Sunday of February each year, and through our share 
in the Cooperative Program. The large majority, at least 85%, 



32 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

have benefitted directly from these gifts and have actually been 
sustained at the point of their financial need. 

The Special Day offering for 1966 is at an all time high and 
looks as if it might be $100,000.00 for the first time. This is very 
good, and we are profoundly grateful. We must not forget, however, 
that even though there has been a 5% increase in the offering from 
last year, costs have advanced by 7%. 

We are in the midst of miracles, and the past year has been 
one in which we have witnessed unusual blessings from the Lord. 
There have been fewer deaths than previously, and the critically ill 
in many instances have been brought back to a measure of reason- 
ably good health. Nursing care has been of the highest quality, and 
you would rejoice to know how far your concern and your gifts go 
in ministering to the needs of the residents, particularly at the 
point of tender loving care in illness. 

It is anticipated that construction will begin on our fifth 
Home at Yanceyville during the coming year, and when it is 
completed we will be able to minister in all of our Homes to 200 
older men and women and relieve, in measure, the terrific pressure 
of a long waiting list of 170 people. 

This ministry of love, in Christ's name, is dependent upon the 
concern, the love, the prayers, and the increased financial support 
of North Carolina Baptists. We are, therefore, going to count 
heavily on you and believe that you will not disappoint the aging 
people who are looking to you urgently for help.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

Eighty-one years ago North Carolina Baptists, recognizing 
the great need, launched a Christian ministry of child care. 
Thomasville was chosen as the site for our first home and Mr. John 
Haynes Mills its first general manager. Under his able leadership 
and the leaderships of those succeeding him, North Carolina 
Baptists' ministry to distressed children has expanded to include 
the Kennedy Home at Kinston, opened in 1914, the Odum Home for 
Indian children at Pembroke, operated by North Carolina Baptists 
since 1958, and the I. G. Greer Home in Chapel Hill, established in 
1963 for children in need of specialized supervision and medical 
services. 

In 1934 the Foster Home Program became a part of the total 
program of North Carolina Baptist Children's Homes. Foster homes 
are Christian homes with parents who have an extra amount of 
love for children and who want to give a home to children who 
have had to leave their own homes. The Children's Homes pay a 
regular amount monthly to the foster parents to help provide for 
the children's needs. Today North Carolina Baptists are caring for 
157 boys and girls annually in foster homes across the state. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 33 

In the church year 1964-1965, Baptists of the Alexander 
Association contributed approximately $5,255.00 to this worthy 
ministry — $3,155.00 through designated giving and approximately 
$2,100.00 (6.9^ out of every $1.00) through the Cooperative 
Program. In this same year, sixteen of our twenty-two churches 
contributed both through the Cooperative Program and designated 
giving, five contributed through designated gifts only, and only 
one church failed to contribute anything to this ministry. 

As we approach our new church year, let me encourage 
continued and increased financial and prayerful support of our 
Children's Homes, mindful of the penetrating words of Jesus : "I 
was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave 
me drink ... I was naked and you clothed me . . . Truly, I say to 
you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you 
did it to me."

N. C. BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

Sometimes in writing an annual report we are tempted to 
make a very large mistake to discover that people really read the 
report. The only mistake in this report may be one of over- 
enthusiasm for the fine way the Baptists of North Carolina are 
beginning to understand and use the Foundation. 

Assets of the Foundation have increased during the past year 
and at the last accounting, around December, the total assets of 
the Foundation had reached approximately one million dollars 
including our real estate. Right many people are setting up 
memorial funds, trust agreements, annuity agreements, and are 
using other services provided by the Baptist Foundation. Members 
of the Foundation Department are organized in such a manner 
that they can answer most any request an individual makes of 
them, either through the church or as an individual, if he will make 
his wishes known to them. By this I mean that they can visit him 
individually and explain the work of the Foundation and how he 
may participate in it, or they can go to any group meeting that 
would provide an opportunity to discuss Will making and uses of 
the Foundation. We covet your continued prayers for this work 
and hope that in the future you will make use of the facilities of 
The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc.

BAPTIST ANNUITY BOARD REPORT 

The Southern Baptist Protection Plan : 

For the first time in two years, all ministers who are not 
enrolled in the Southern Baptist Protection Plan are being informed 



34 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

about its benefits. A direct mail campaign has been conducted to 
give ample information to prospective ministers in each state 
convention. 

The Southern Baptist Protection Plan provides benefits for 
age, disability and widow. Cost for the protection is based on the 
minister's salary, and is 10 per cent of any amount up to $4,000 a 
year. The minister's church is encouraged to pay the total cost. In 
some cases the minister and church share the cost. The maximum 
amount a church can pay in the basic plan is $400 a year if its 
minister is under 60 years of age. 
The Health Benefit Plan : 

Enrollment has reached 10,054 in the Health Benefit Plan. 
During the past year, promotional emphasis has been placed on 
this plan. 

The Health Plan is an all-inclusive program of hospital, 
surgical and major medical benefits. Enrollment is open on a 
semi-annual basis. The next enrollment will be open early in the 
fall with the deadline on November 30, 1966. 
Benefits Paid : 

In 1965, almost $4 million was paid in age retirement, dis- 
ability or widow benefits to annuitants through the Annuity 
Board's protection program. The annuitants' checks vary in 
amounts, depending on the length of time each was a member and 
the amount of dues he paid. 

Since the beginning of the Annuity Board in 1918, almost $51 
million has been paid out in benefits which annuitants have termed 
"manna from heaven." 
Members In Annuity Board Plans: 

Today more than 16,660 churches are providing protection 
through the Protection Program for their ministers. Approximately 
10.764 of these churches are paying the 10 per cent dues. 

There are 135 of the 176 educational institutions, hospitals, 
children's homes, homes for the aged and other Convention agencies 
who have protection programs with the Annuity Board. There are 
more than 28,000 members in the retirement plans of the Annuity 
Board. 

There are seven states with 70 per cent or more of the churches 
in the Program. At present, North Carolina has 48 per cent of the 
churches in the Protection Program for ministers. 

Rev. Guy Cain promotes the Protection Program in North 
Carolina. He is jointly employed by the Annuity Board and North 
Carolina Baptist Convention. For information about any of the 
plans in the Protection Program contact Rev. Guy Cain, 301 
Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27603, or write the

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REPORT 

More high school students are entering college today than 
ever before. Why this increased interest in a higher education? 
More skills are required in positions thus calling for a higher 
education. High school students do realize the importance of a 
college education and make use of the facilities offered by our seven 
Baptist colleges in North Carolina. 

Young people fail to plan to attend college for various reasons. 
Among these are lack of financial aid, lack of persuasion from 
parents and lack of preparation on the part of the young people 
for college. 

There are four main sources of financial aid offered through 
our colleges to young people who are willing to work. First, there 
are the student loans which are available after one semester of 
satisfactory work at our colleges. Second, there are work grants 
which are jobs on the campus for which the student receives pay. 
Third, there are a limited number of scholarships through our 
colleges for students who have maintained a good record in high 
school. Fourth, there are National Student Loans which are offered 
to students who really need financial aid. Informaion about these 
four programs can be received from the colleges, high school 
principals and guidance directors. 

In order to enter college, a student must have completed his 
high school course satisfactorily. Encouragement from parents to 
study and work hard in high school is very important. If no one 
else cares, why should the young people? 

In preparing for college, high school students should begin 
early. The Council on Christian Higher Education offers the 
following suggestions for preparation : 

(1) Those in high school who wish to go on to college should 
apply themselves diligently to their studies. While grades 
are not the sole factor, they certainly are a crucial part 
of the admission program. 

(2) Application should be made early. The junior year is not 
too early to begin making plans for college and to apply 
for admission information. 

(3) It would be wise, perhaps, to have a first, second, and 
third choice about college, and to apply at more than one 
place. 

By using the preceding suggestions and by supporting the 
Cooperative Program, young people and parents can prepare for 
a college education in the future. 

The Council on Christian Education refers to the Cooperative 
Program as the lifeline for the North Carolina Baptist colleges. By 



36 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

supporting the Cooperative Program, we are supporting our 
colleges. Remember Christian Education Day on Father's Day 
each June and support our young people's education through our 
seven Baptist colleges in North Carolina.

BIBLICAL RECORDER REPORT 

Many important issues are facing North Carolina Baptists. 
Churches are making decisions on the Life and Work Curriculum, 
especially whether to use the Life and Work Sunday School lessons. 
For a period of at least six months, the Recorder will run both 
lessons as a service to our churches. 

In our state, changing conditions are raising serious questions 
about the fate of almost every institution we support. In the near 
future Baptists will have to decide our future course in higher 
education and in our Social Service institutions, especially in view 
of increased government participation in these areas. The Recorder 
will present the issues and possible choices open to us. 

In the Southern Baptist Convention, there is talk of a name 
change. The work of our Baptist colleges is being studied as never 
before. A great Crusade of the Americas is in the planning stages. 
All of us need to know about these developments. 

In addition to issues within our own denomination, new and 
disturbing clouds are on the horizon elsewhere. Talk of a New 
Morality, the so-called Death of God Movement, and the drastic 
changes in young people's attitudes toward the church are being 
widely discussed. Christians need to be informed on these trends. 

A drive is taking shape in North Carolina for liquor-by-the- 
drink. The 1967 General Assembly will consider such proposals 
and Baptists need a dependable source of information so they can 
act when necessary. The Recorder will give on-the-spot coverage. 

Instead of merely receiving this as a report, please take definite 
action to see that the Recorder soon goes to every family in your 
church membership. All of us know that the Recorder is just as 
important as other literature which our churches distribute, if 
not more so. No other publication can take the place of the Biblical 
Recorder. 

In these inflationary times, it is refreshing to have something 
that is not out of reach financially. Under the Church Budget Plan, 
the Recorder is available for $2 a year — the same price it was more 
than 100 years ago. Your church will be a stronger church with 
every family receiving our state paper each week. Don't delay this 
important decision, especially in view of the issues facing North 
Carolina Baptists in the coming year.

Ernest A. Banner, Jr.

MISSION REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

For the past two years the work of associational missions has 
been thrust to a greater extent than usual on the missions com- 
mittee. We have been fortunate during this time in having as 
chairman of the committee Rev. R. M. Winecoff . Whatever success 
has been enjoyed in this program has been largely due to his wise 
and dedicated leadership. It was with deep regret that we learned 
of his being called to other fields of service. We are sure that we 
express the sentiments of this entire association when we humbly 
thank God for his sound counsel and unselfish labors. 

We have also been blessed in having as our promotional secre- 
tary Mrs. Walter Howell. Mrs. Howell has not only rendered 
efficient service as secretary, but has assisted in many other ways 
to further associational work. 

Also our thanks go once again to Mrs. A. E. Watts for her 
generous gift of office space, heat, electricity, telephone, and for 
her own time in answering the telephone and other assistance with 
the office. 

Since this report is written before the letters from the churches 
are complete, we do not have definite figures to report, but such 
as we have indicate that offerings for associational missions are 
substantially the same as a year ago. From general reports other 
mission offerings appear to be about the same. We do not have any 
figure for baptisms. 

We pray for the day when we can have the services of a full- 
time missionary, but until our income is greater we do not think it 
possible. Therefore we make the following recommendations : 

1. That the associational office remain in the home of Mrs. A. E. 
Watts. 

2. That Mrs. Walter Howell continue serving as Promotional 
Secretary on an hourly basis as she did last year, keeping the 
office open on Monday and Friday for five hours each, and 
working additional hours as they are necessary. 

3. That the Moderator serve in a counseling capacity to the 
Association, and when he deems it necessary, that he be assisted 
by the Clerk and the Chairman of Trustees. 

4. That our pastors and other messengers to the Association 
heartily and prayerfully support the recommendations of our 
budget committee and try to lead our churches to adopt the goal 
of giving 3 % of regular offerings for associational work so that 
within a period of five years we can build a fund of $15,000 
towards securing a missionary home and office. We further urge 
that churches adopt the practice of sending their gifts once each 
month. 



38 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

5. As an expression of our appreciation to Mrs. A. E. Watts for 
donation of office space and other kindnesses, that the Associa- 
tion make a gift of $100. to the A. E. Watts Memorial Fund. 

6. That the Association instruct the Trustees to investigate and 
purchase, if possible, a lot for an office and missionary home.

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

The Foreign Mission Board in its annual meeting on October 
12 will study and take action upon budget proposals for the ensuing 
year. With almost 2,200 missionaries already at work in 62 
countries the total budget reaches a large figure. The 1967 budget 
will be in excess of $27 million. This will be $2 million larger than 
the 1966 budget. 

A budget must provide support for missionaries and operating 
expenses for ministries of evangelism and church development, 
Christian education, medical work, publications, radio and televi- 
sion, good-will centers, and other avenues of witness on mission 
fields. It must also provide funds for construction of mission 
residences, churches, hospitals, schools, publishing houses, and 
other needed structures. 

An annual increase in the cost of operations becomes an 
accepted fact in missions advance, as indicated by the requirement 
that the budget for 1967 be $2 million larger than the budget for 
1966. Those missionaries who are appointed in 1966 must be 
provided for in the budget for 1967 and ensuing years. In addition, 
funds must be available for normal growth in the work. Further 
provisions are necessary for a more extended program or 
orientation for new missionaries going to the field, as well as for 
a revised furlough plan whereby missionaries have an option 
between a short leave after 32 months of service on the field, as 
over against the regular furlough at the end of their normal terms 
of service. 

Funds to provide this budget come through two main channels : 
The Co-operative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offer- 
ing. These two sources of missionary support come flowing together 
as two tributaries to form one great river of compassion flowing 
out into a needy world. Whatever we do in mission effort represents 
the combined reinforcement brought about through the Co-operative 
Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

The Co-operative Program plus the Lottie Moon Christmas 
Offerings — mingled with dedicated lives and intercessory prayer — 
yield an outreach of mission effort that brings life and joy 
throughout the world.

ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION M 

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

The year was characterized by strong support for home 
missions by Southern Baptists through prayer, participation, and 
most visibly in finances. The Cooperative Program provided 
$4,365,353, including the largest Advance Section in history, 
$911,753 ; and the Annie Armstrong Offering promoted by Woman's 
Missionary Union provided a record $3,573,146. The Board allocated 
$50,000 from the Advance Section for relief to hurricane-stricken 
areas in Louisiana. The agency expects, after further consultation 
with the Executive Committee and the Foreign Mission Board, to 
establish a permanent relief fund and ministry. 

The missionary force, operating in Cuba, Panama, Puerto Rico, 
and the 50 states, grew by 148 to a new high of 2,520, with most 
of the personnel employed under the cooperative agreements with 
the state Baptist conventions. The imprisonment of missionaries, 
Herbert Caudill and David Fite, and 51 Cuban pastors by the 
Cuban government brought concern for their safety and for the 
future of Baptists on the island. The two missionaries and 43 of 
the Cuban pastors continue in prison despite every effort of the 
Board and the United States Department of State to secure their 
release. Two new types of missionary personnel were used during 
1965: college graduates for two-year terms (US-2), and mature 
lay persons for short terms of voluntary service (Christian Service 
Corps). Both groups are expected to be more fully used in the 
future. 

While a continued emphasis is expected to be given to evan- 
gelism, the starting of new churches and church-type missions, 
and other traditional work in home missions, the Board is studying, 
through a committee, its goals and objectives through 1976. Special 
attention will be given to such areas as urban centers, the growing 
number of unchurched, the place of the church in today's society, 
and ways to deal with such forces as racial justice and groups and 
persons in special need. 

The Board faces the future with better defined programs, a 
more comprehensive organization, more adequate staff, and with 
stronger resources. The agency looks expectantly toward greater 
accomplishments in winning to faith in Jesus Christ the people of 
our America. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Paul Braswell 

STATE MISSIONS 

The fruits of State Missions can be seen along the highways 
and byways of our state and world. For more than 100 years 
Baptists have been reaping the great fruits of State Missions. Even 
today we can see the evidence in almost every city, hamlet, rural 
area and town of our state. 



40 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

The motivation in all of our State Mission work is to bring the 
lost to Christ and to aid the Christian in his spiritual growth. State 
Missions helps in the strengthening of the present churches and 
aids in the establishment and strengthening of the new work 
because all General Board work is State Missions. 

State Missions is (1) Preaching the Gospel — through our Bible 
Institute at Fruitland; (2) Healing the brokenhearted — through 
rescue homes and other programs which help the needy and down- 
trodden; (3) Teaching the handicapped — as in our program to the 
deaf, with Jerry Potter and Neal Peyton teaching in churches, 
over television, and in homes; (4) Setting at Liberty the Bruised — 
by sending the Gospel of Christ to those behind bars and in juvenile 
homes. 

It is our duty as Christians to spread the word of Christ. 
Through our State Missions we are fulfilling the command "Go 
ye ... " 



COOPERATIVE PROGRAM REPORT 

A pressing need of each church in our association is an under- 
girding of the Cooperative Program with prayer. Information on 
the world wide missionary work carried on through the Cooperative 
Program will form a basis by which your church can pray with 
knowledge and zeal. 

The Cooperative Program must be nurtured in prayer because 
information alone is not enough. It is hoped that every church will 
have a special prayer for some mission cause supported through 
the Cooperative Program in the Prayer Service each week during 
the month of October. 

We are witnessing the greatest missionary advance in Southern 
Baptist history in missionaries being sent, benevolent work done 
and training of young people for world wide service. This advance 
is being made through our missionaries, orphanages, schools, 
homes for the aged, and our Baptist hospitals. Through the Co- 
operative Program you literally feed the hungry, clothe the naked, 
heal the sick, and preach the gospel to the far corners of the earth. 

We are making progress in our concern for those Jesus came 
to seek and to save. Each year more of our churches are increasing 
Cooperative Program giving and at the same time others are 
beginning whole hearted participation. 

Several associations in North Carolina have 100% of their 
churches giving through the Cooperative Program. According to 
available records our association gave a total of $34,903.00 this 
past year through the Cooperative Program. Four churches did not 
share in world missions through the Cooperative Program. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 41 

With enthusiasm let us be faithful in worshiping with tithes 
and offerings, and our church sharing regularly through the 
Cooperative Program for the benefit of a lost world.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

One of the major emphases of the Sunday School for the last 
few years has been "Outreach." The reason for this is very clear. 
The best teaching and the best preaching has no effect on people 
unless they hear it. 

Our promotional efforts for this year have been directed 
particularly through teachers and officers of the various churches. 
We have held two general meetings which have been well attended 
with more than two-thirds of the churches participating. However, 
we could wish for many more to attend. 

For next year the Sunday School has been assigned a major 
role in the Church Growth Plan. This has been defined as "a 
continuing concern at work through a church-centered, Sunday 
School-led, adult-focused correlated effort to reach people for 
Christ." The scope of this plan includes the involvement of all 
church program organizations. Led by the Sunday School, the 
outreach task will be programmed to place a church's maximum 
force on this priority task. Much helpful information about this 
program will be found in the Sunday School Builder and the 
teachers' quarterlies. We urge that they be read carefully. 

We would again stress the importance of Vacation Bible School, 
the January Bible Study, the various training courses, and the 
Seminary Extension courses. These are recommended not only as 
a help in leading others, but as a means of enriching our own 
spiritual lives. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. M. Grant 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT 

The importance of Vacation Bible School as an arm of evan- 
gelism is indicated by the fact that there were thirty-two 
professions of faith in Christ, fifteen fewer than in 1965. A school 
was held in every church with a total enrollment of 2,046, an 
average attendance of 1,852, and $673.68 given to missions. 

There were thirty-eight fewer pupils enrolled this year than 
last, and there was a decrease of fifteen in professions of faith. 
Antioch and Oxford Memorial reported Standard schools. 

Certainly much good has been accomplished, but there is still 
much to be done. May I urge each church to work harder toward 
a Standard school in 1967 and to get more in attendance that we 
may win more to Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Butler Chapman

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

These are exciting days for the ministry of Training Union. 
Many new ideas, new materials, and a new seriousness to our need 
for Christian training are coming to us through our Training 
Unions ! 

This has been a busy year for Training Union in the Alexander 
Association. Your associational Training Union director and other 
associational officers visited in two churches throughout our 
association this year. 

1. Special projects engaged in include: Leadership School (with 
state workers leading) . 

We had two churches represented in the Junior Memory Work 
Tournament, one church in the Intermediate Sword Drill Tourna- 
ment. This represented nine people in one or more of the 
tournaments. 

2. Our association was represented in the regional tournaments 
by: Randy Kirby, Gregory Keller, Cherry Lail, David Winecoff. 
Timmy Winecoff, and Alice Winecoff. 

We had fifty-six people from our association attending our 
North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Southport last summer for 
one of our Training Union assembly weeks, and eighteen attended 
our Southwide Assembly at Ridgecrest. Thirty-five Intermediates 
and Young People attended the Youth Convention at First Baptist 
Church, Shelby, North Carolina. 

We have ten Training Unions in our association with an enroll- 
ment of 1,025. Our goal for next year is eleven Training Unions 
with an enrollment of 1,115. There are two adult unions in our 
association using the Alternate Organization Plan. 

May I urge each of you to study and stay up-to-date with 
current Training Union materials, especially The Training Union 
Magazine. This is essential in order to know what is going on in 
Training Union work. Also, may I thank each of you for your 
prayers, assistance, and support in carrying on the Training Union 
work. I would like to pledge to you my best during the coming 
year, and beg you to support and use your Training Union as a 
means toward a more effective Christian witness through the local 
church. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Earl Teague 

MUSIC REPORT 

You say, "Singing is not for me." God says, "Let all the 
people praise thee" (Psalm 67:3). You say, "I can't carry a tune in 
a bucket." God says, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord" (Psalm 
100:1). You say, "I'll sing, if it's something I know." God says, 
"Sing unto the Lord a new song" (Psalm 98:1). You say, "I can't 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 43 



read music, so I'm willing to leave all that to the choirs and the 
minister of music." God says, "Study to shew thyself approved 
unto God" (2 Tim. 2:15a). You say, "God overlooked me when he 
passed out musical talent; therefore, he doesn't expect me to sing." 
God says, "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord" 
(Psalm 150:6). 

Music is as old as Christianity itself. Our Saviour's birth 
announcement was attended by a heavenly choir, which came near 
the earth to sing His praise. In succeeding centuries, music has 
been used in Christian endeavors. 

Music is a means to the end that the Saviour be made known 
to those who know Him not, as well as a means of praise and 
adoration for those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. The 
relationship between church music and the proclamation of the 
gospel is no-where seriously questioned. With the current emphasis 
on proclamation and witness, music is revealed to be a vital part 
of the current missionary enterprise. 

In recent years, the approach to world missions has been 
modified and enlarged in scope to include music as an acceptable 
tool of proclamation. There have been at least four distinct 
approaches in the pioneer musical efforts by Southern Baptists: 
(1) the appointment of full-time music missionaries by the Foreign 
Mission Board, (2) organized tours of the mission fields by musical 
groups, (3) evangelistic music as a vital part on the mission fields, 
and (4) individual sacred concert tours sponsored by the Foreign 
Mission Board. 

The Donald Orrs, appointed to Colombia, South America, have 
the distinction of being Southern Baptists' first music missionaries. 
Since their appointment, an increasing number of musicians have 
gone out to the ends of the earth to proclaim the gospel through 
song. 

The tours by musical groups have made a lasting contribution 
to missions. Joe Stroud, our music secretary of North Carolina 
Baptist Convention, has led three groups of church musicians on 
singing tours of Europe. These singers have greatly strengthened 
the Baptist witness wherever they have sung. 

It quickly became apparent in the New Life Movement in Japan 
that music related to the hearts of non-Christian people. An 
indelible impact was made upon an entire nation as gospel music 
attracted the people and prepared their hearts for the preaching 
of the Word of God. 

Sacred concerts, the fourth approach to missions through 
music, adapt to the existing conditions for effective proclamation. 
Non-Christians interested in so-called Western culture will attend 
out of curiosity and interest in artistic endeavors. The Christian 
artist then has an open doorway to witness to the saving power of 
Christ.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 

"Home Missions" was our theme for our Associational Meet- 
ing this year, and we feel we had a good meeting. We have been 
combining more of our meetings with the Brotherhood (as the State 
Convention recommends) . Both organizations are definitely 
missionary, and we are striving to get more of our men and women 
interested in the greatest work of all. 

We have visited many of our churches and counseled with some 
of our ladies on the telephone. It is our desire to do more. We would 
like to visit all of our W.M.U.'s and also churches that do not have 
a W.M.U. that we may awaken our ladies to the need of working 
for the Master. Doing His work and witnessing for Him is the only 
work with lasting and eternal rewards. We are the only ones He 
has to do His work. We ask so much of our Saviour and do so little 
for Him. 

Each year our offerings have been on the increase. I cannot 
report on our prayer life. I can only hope it has also been on the 
increase. Sincere, heartfelt prayer can still bring miracles. 

Instead of listing our highlights of the past year, I feel I should 
list some goals for this next year. 

1. Work more with our youth. Win them to God and help them 
to be better witnesses. Help them to be more aware of God's 
watchfulness and of their example by setting better 
examples ourselves. 

2. Become better organized ourselves and more aware of the 
needs of others and help where help is needed. 

3. Organize new unions. Help others to realize their need to 
work together for God and His work. 

4. Pray more, not just lip service, but sincere, heartrending 
communication with our Lord each day. "Take time to be 
Holy." 

5. Study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman that 
needs not to be ashamed. Come to the Central Training 
School and learn, and then go out and really work. 

It is our desire and prayer that this coming year will be the 
best year yet for the Alexander Associational W.M.U. and that our 
goals will be reached and God will be pleased with our efforts and 
with our witnessing for Him by our actions in daily life. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. A. D. Lindsey 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

As the work of the Brotherhood in Southern Baptist churches 
continues to grow, we are aware of the fact that our work is taking 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 45 

on a deeper meaning in the field of mission work. This year we 
are seeing in our new organization of Brotherhood more emphasis 
being placed on the Royal Ambassador work with emphasis 
continuing to be placed on the need for our pastors to become closer 
and closer in touch with the men of our churches as they try to 
help promote the over-all program of the church. 

Following is a new suggested arrangement of officers for our 
church Brotherhoods : 

Brotherhood Director (working with the pastor) 

Associate Director 

Secretary 

Baptist Men's President (R. A. Leader) 

Mission Study Leader 

Mission Action Leader 

We urge each church that does not have a Brotherhood to 
prayerfully consider organizing one. To the churches that now have 
an active Brotherhood, we suggest that your men take advantage 
of all the training they can get and to take time to study all the 
literature now available regarding the work of the Brotherhood. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. D. Lindsey 

EVANGELISM REPORT 

This seems to be the age of rebellion. People everywhere are 
rebelling against constituted authority. Rioting mobs cover the 
streets at night in our large cities, firing guns at random and 
throwing fire bombs with precision. Lawlessness seems to be the 
order of the day. Man is bewildered and doped with despair. He 
searches for the answer but it seems to elude him. 

Do we have the answer? We can positively say we do have the 
answer. God's answer is in New Testament churches, preaching the 
Gospel of Jesus Christ, preaching both by precept and by example. 
We must become living epistles, demonstrating Christ's love and 
power through the working of the Holy Spirit. 

God's answer to the critics and persecutors of the Church has 
been the hot and holy fires of revival. From Pentecost to the last 
real revival in the local church, God's answer has been conclusive 
and complete. 

Southern Baptist's attention is directed to the Crusade of the 
Americas in 1969. Twenty-one countries are cooperating in the 
crusade. We must get ready. Our God is a God of planning and 
purpose. Now is the time to get every church committed to the 
crusade date for 1969. 

Evangelism is doing just what Jesus said — "Going, Telling" 
the good news of Salvation. This is every Christian's main task! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Oliver C. Price

ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



CONSTITUTION OF THE 
ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

PREAMBLE : We, the messengers of Missionary Baptist Churches 
in the County of Alexander, State of North Carolina, do hereby 
propose to establish and maintain the order and rules of a district 
Baptist Association in conformity to the following plan : 

Article I. NAME 

The name of the body shall be the Alexander Baptist Asso- 
ciation. 

Article II. PURPOSE 

The purpose of this Association shall be to counsel together 
for the enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom and for 
the promoting of unity and growth among the churches related to 
the Association. To this end the Association will cooperate with 
the North Carolina Baptist State Convention and the Southern 
Baptist Convention and their agencies in the work of Missions, 
Christian Education, and Social Service. 

Article III. MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1 : The Alexander Association shall be composed of 
the pastor and three messengers from each Missionary Baptist 
Church that voluntarily cooperates as the Alexander Baptist 
Association, the general officers of the Association, chairmen of 
standing committees, and the pastor and messengers from any 
church that may hereafter be recognized as a cooperating church 
by the Association. 

Section 2 : A cooperating church shall be defined as follows : 

a. One that shares the missionary spirit of the Association, 

b. Elects and sends messengers to the annual meeting, 

c. Contributes financially to the work of the Association each 
year, and 

d. Provides an annual report to the Association upon the forms 
provided by the Associational Clerk. 

Section 3: Any church may sever its working relationship 
with the Association at any time it chooses. Likewise, the Associa- 
tion may refuse to continue recognition of a church as a cooperating 
church when for two consecutive years without sufficient reason 
that church does not meet the stipulations stated in Section 2, or 
when for any other reason, approved by the Association in annual 
session, a church is considered by intent and action to be a liability 
to the fellowship and work of the Association. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Section 4: Churches desiring to relate themselves to the 
Association in its work and fellowship may do so by adhering to the 
following procedure: 

a. Make application to the Associational Fellowship Committee 
for recognition as a cooperating Baptist church, such appli- 
cation to be made at least three months before the annual 
meeting of the Association. 

b. Furnish the Fellowship Committee the information required 
in the annual letter of churches to the Association, plus 
such other information as the Committee may request for 
properly evaluating the application. 

c. Upon recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and 
approval by the Association in annual session a church may 
come under the watch care of the Association for a period 
of one year. At the end of one year of watch care relation- 
ship and upon recommendation of the Fellowship Committee 
and approval by the Association, a church may be recognized 
as a cooperating church eligible to all privileges and 
responsibilities of a church cooperating in the work of the 
Alexander Association. 

d. During the period of watch-care relationship a church shall 
meet the stipulations of Section 2 above. 

e. In the case of new churches which anticipate a working 
relationship with the Association, duly elected representa- 
tives of the proposed church shall consult with the Moder- 
ator and Fellowship Committee of the Association relative to 
the need for another church, its location, and its proposed 
ministry. Upon the recommendation of the Fellowship 
Committee the Executive Committee shall authorize such 
other assistance as is requested by the church or deemed 
necessary by the Executive Committee in developing a 
cooperating Missionary Baptist Church. 



Article IV. MEETINGS 

Section 1 : The Association shall meet annually on Wednesday 
after the third Sunday of October and continue for two days 
sessions or longer, as seems wise to the Committee on Order of

Section 2: The associational year shall begin on October 1 
and continue through September 30. 

Section 3 : The Executive Committee shall act for the Asso- 
ciation between annual sessions. It shall meet quarterly and at any 
other time necessary to expedite associational business.

local churches, with all details to be worked out by the missions com-

REPORT OF THE RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

Be it resolved that we, the messengers of the Eightieth Annual Session 
of the Alexander Association, do here at this session express deep thanks to: 

1. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for His boundless grace that 
has sustained us through another year. 

2. To our host churches, Calvary and Liledoun, for their gracious 
hospitality extended to us during this annual session. 

3. To our moderator, Marion Powell, our clerk, W. O. Warren, and 
our secretary, Mrs. Walter Howell, for their untiring efforts of 
their services this past year. 

4. To the program committee for the inspiring program presented, 
and to all guests and speakers. 

5. To Miss Lucy Echerd and Miss Jane Martin for their music 
program. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: 

6. That we do here and now reaffirm our resolution, adopted at our 
seventy-eighth annual session, in opposition to the establishment 
of liquor stores and the sale of alcoholic beverages, and that this 
be reaffirmed each year and that this resolution be published in 
our local newspapers and that the expenses be paid out of our 
associational funds. Be it further resolved that we urge mer- 
chants to examine their literature and keep it Christian. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry C. Cook, Jr., Chairman 
Mrs. Hattie Harrington 
Henkle Little 

HISTORY OF CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH 

Calvary Missionary Baptist Church was organized and instituted on 
April 11, 1948 with A. E. Watts Moderator, A. C. Payne Secretary, and 
E. V. Bumgarner, W. O. Johnson, J. A. Icenhour and L. S. Johnson as mem- 
bers of the Council. Two members came under the watch care waiting 
letters, two for baptism and eleven by letter, making a total of fifteen 
Charter Members. G. L. Osborne was elected pastor for one year. 

On October 5, 1949, the application for membership in the Alexander 
Baptist Association was read by the Moderator at the Annual Meeting along 
with the Church Letter for the year. Two services were being held each 
month, there were 26 church members, 55 in Sunday School and yearly 
expenditure of $215. On recommendation of the Committee on Admission 
of Churches, it was voted to accept the church into the Association. 

J. G. Cardwell was called as pastor in 1949 and served until May 1954. 
Roy Rufry served from May to September 1954 when the present pastor 
Henkle Little was called. 

The original church building was frame with brick siding, about 25 by 
50 feet on a lot 100 by 200 feet. In I960 the parking lot was purchased 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 27 

from the Town and in May 1961, $3,000 was borrowed to pave the lot. 
Since then, four other lots were purchased for additional parking and build- 
ing space. 

By November 1964, the Sunday School had reached a goal of 200 aver- 
age attendance for a year and $30,000 in the Building Fund. Plans were 
started and on March 21, 1965, the church voted to accept the plans and 
$75,000 was borrowed. The new church was completed the following year 
with air conditioned auditorium, 20 Sunday School rooms, a baptistry, two 
dressing rooms and two rest rooms. New furniture, an organ and a piano 
were purchased. Completing the walks and yards brought the total cost to 
$126,000. 

The Dedication Service was held on May 22, 1966 with the Rev. E. M. 
Ferguson as speaker. The church property is valued at $200,000 with a 
church debt of only $50,000. Church membership is now 324 with more 
than 200 in Sunday School. 

HISTORY OF LILEDOUN BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Alexander Baptist Association held its Seventy-Fourth Annual 
Session at Liledoun six years ago on October 11, 1961 and at that time the 
history of the church was brought up to date. The church was organized in 
1906 and has had six pastors between the first pastor, Uncle Parks Gwaltney 
and the present Pastor, James Lockee, who came in March I960. 

The church has a record number of men who have been ordained as 
preachers through the years: 

J. Walter Watts 1911 Devon Dyson 1961 

J. Leroy Rufty 1941 Billy Dyson 1964 

W. A. Heafner 1952 Bobby Simmons 1966 

Paul McAlpine 1957 Phil Chapman 1966 
Arthur Jenkins 1958 

When we were here last, the new educational building and the parson- 
age had been completed. In 1963, the sanctuary was remodeled for approxi- 
mately $17,000. The parking lot was paved in 1964 at a cost of $7,500 
and the road paved through the cemetery in 1965 for $1,900. 

In the past six years, the church membership and Sunday School at- 
tendance have increased and a Brotherhood has been organized. Mission 
gifts have increased along with local expenditures.

OUR BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER: THE NEW DAY IN MEDICINE 

In this day of rapid change in almost every area of our lives, there are 
few places in which change has been more rapid than in the field of medi- 
cine. In the last twenty-five years we have witnessed in medical care a trans- 
formation as dramatic as in almost any other area of life. 

This period parallels the period of development of our Baptist Medical 
Center in Winston-Salem. This began in 1941, when our Hospital and our 
Medical School were joined to form the first and only such Baptist combin- 
ation. Today it stands as one of the very fine medical centers of our country, 
reflecting the vast progress which has come in the field of medical care. All 
indications are that this progress will continue at an ever growing rate. 

It is a day of increasing specialization, with men and women highly 
trained and dedicated in their special fields of medicine. It is a day of ex- 
panding research in medicine, as in industry, agriculture and business. 

Many of the fruits of this work seem almost like modern miracles. 
There are new means of diagnosing our ills, such as the brain scan and the 
use of sound waves. New drugs are being developed almost daily for com- 
batting disease, including antiobiotics and new chemicals. There are new 
techniques in treating our ills, as in heart surgery, inhalation therapy, and 
replacing of organs of the body. There are new instruments to perform 
these miracles, as the cobalt machine, the heart-lung pump, the pacemaker 
for the heart, the laser beam in surgery. There are new facilities for better 
care of the patient, such as the intensive care unit and the progressive or 
minimal care unit. 

There has developed a new concept in medicine in recognizing the 
patient as a person, including his emotional and spiritual needs as well as 
his physical problems. Psychiatry has developed, spiritual therapy is an im- 
portant factor, and pastoral care is a part of the total care of the sick. 

Such important progress necessarily means greatly increased cost in 
medical care. But the high cost is more than offset by service which gives us 
better health, more relief from suffering and handicaps, and added years to 
life. 

This is not the work of an institution alone — it is a cooperative enter- 
prise. It is a ministry in which we as churches and individual Christians 
join hands with those who serve in our Medical Center. If this service is 
made available to all our people who need it, we of necessity have to provide 
much of the means, for there are many who cannot pay for it. This is a 
wonderful opportunity when we by simply giving our money can share in so 
important a service to our brother in need — and even hear a "Well done," 
for "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, 
ye have done it unto me." 

Respectfully submitted, 
James W. Teague

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES 

Your North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging have been on the 
move during the past year. In fact, we moved into our new home at Yancey- 
ville in September and will be able to receive thirty more dear old people 
into the family of our Homes. When the Yanceyville Home, our fifth, is 
occupied, we will have a total of 200 deserving older men and women in 
our care in all of the Homes. 

As you know, we now have five Homes and an Infirmary in operation. 
The new Home in Yanceyville, Resthaven and the Hayes Home in Winston- 
Salem, the Albemarle Home in Albemarle, and the Hamilton Home in 
Hamilton. 

In these Homes you have an eternal investment and can rejoice in the 
loving care which you are making possible for our older people. The ma- 
jority are financially needy persons and are supplemented through the love 
gifts of North Carolina Baptists. Two sources of income from the churches 
are increasingly vital in the support of our residents, the Special Day Offer- 
ing, received on the 3rd Sunday of February each year, and our share in the 
Cooperative Program. 

The Special Day Offering for 1967 is at an all-time high but has in- 
creased by 10 r 7 over last year. This is most commendable, but when we 
face the reality of costs, which have advanced by 20 r 7, and the maintenance 
of a new Home and the care of 30- additional residents at Yanceyville. we 
could face a real crisis during the next vear. unless the gifts from our Baptist 
people continue to increase in proportion to our needs. 

We wish to thank Baptist people across the state who are making pos- 
sible the ministry to the aging in Christ's name, and we assure you that each 
of your five Homes exist for the people from all over our great state. These 
homes could not operate without your love, your prayers, your concern, and 
your financial support. 

In the midst of all the joys, there have been sorrows. The oldest resident, 
Aunt Fannie Drumwright, passed away in June, just short of her 106th 
birthday. She came to live at the Home at the age of 93. and the thirteen 
years of her presence here have been a shining example of the special signi- 
ficance of a Christian ministry to older people. The compassionate nursing 
care alone which this little lady received is reason enough to thank God 
for the people called Baptists, whose vision and concern for mankind have 
included the aging in answering the Master's call in the service of the Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. I. Johnson 



BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Helping children and young people to grow and develop toward 
Christian maturity is one of the greatest privileges in life. No task is more 
important than helping a child to grow into healthy, well-adjusted, respon- 
sible citizenship. At the Children's Homes we seek to provide the proper 
atmosphere, encouragement and supervision to assure the development of 
inborn, God-given talents of our children. 



30 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

This agency offers a variety of quality services to the children or 
families who have not been able to continue a satisfactory pattern of living 
together. A total of 33 cottages on five campuses provide group care of dif- 
ferent kinds. There are two residences for emotionally disturbed children, 
convenient to a great medical center where psychiatric services are available. 
This fall, for the first time, a single cottage at Wallburg is being opened for 
the rehabilitation of boys. 

In addition to group homes, the needs of many children are met 
through the use of Foster Homes. A growing interest in this phase of our 
work is encouraging. Many families are finding happiness and opportunity 
for service in caring for foster children. Thus, many boys and girls, who 
otherwise would not have this opportunity are privileged to grow up in 
Christian homes. Should you have an "extra measure of love" to share in 
this way the Homes would like to know of your interest. 

Regional case work centers, staffed by trained social workers, are located 
in six prominent areas of the State and add to the ability of the Homes to 
offer counseling services to distressed families and to those for whom family 
rehabilitation has been achieved. 

In June of 1967 the first of the new family living cottages was com- 
pleted and is being used by brothers and sisters who can profit by sharing 
the same home. This building was provided by Mr. and Mrs. William M. 
York of Greensboro, and is named the York Cottage. It is a model for the 
family living approach in group child care. A similar cottage is already 
under construction at Mills Home and two buildings of this type are now 
being built on the Kennedy Home campus. 

The Child Development Center on the Mills Home Campus was estab- 
lished to serve the local community as a means of strengthening family life 
and to provide a demonstration and informational program which can offer 
assistance to churches in beginning any phase of weekday care and education 
for preschool children. During the 1967-68 session the Center will serve 70 
children and their families in two kindergarten groups and nursery school 
groups, with about 35 children in full day care. The staff is providing con- 
sultation services upon request to churches interested in the program. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and the Staff of the Children's 
Homes are committed to the task of maintaining a Christian Program of 
Child Care — a program that will merit the undivided support and loyalty 
of our people and that will bring favor to our Lord. To that end it is our 
purpose to meet, as effectively as possible, the challenges of our day.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST FOUNDATION 

History of the Baptist Foundation of North Carolina, will record the 
year 1967 as a year of tragedy for our leadership. For some months our 
Chairman, Dr. I. G. Greer, has been critically ill, and a short time ago our 
Executive Secretary, C. Gordon Maddrey, was stricken with a series of heart 
attacks and remains critical at the Rex Hospital. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 31 

There have been many interesting and challenging developments this 
year. This has been the most fruitful year in the work of the Foundation 
with many new commitments and marked progress in developing some of 
the projects of large standing. This is especially true of the new Home for 
the Aging in Yanceyville. Certainly this will continue to constitute a great 
challenge to many of our people who can find in the Baptist Foundation their 
finest opportunity for investing in Kingdom Enterprises. 

Please continue to remember our leaders in your prayers.

ANNUITY BOARD OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION 

Response to the new program of family and retirement protection dur- 
ing the first quarter of 1967 indicates enthusiastic acceptance by ministers 
and denominational employees. During the first three months of 1967, more 
than 1,000 persons joined some part of the three-plan program as compared 
with only 685 during the first quarter of 1966. 

The new Program, called the Southern Baptist Protection Program, 
provides additional benefits for disability, new benefits for children, educa- 
tion of children and dependent parent. These extra benefits are in Plan "A". 

The new Protection Program incorporates the three plans into one 
certificate, which formerly required separate certificates for each plan. The 
three plans are: Southern Baptist Protection Plan, which is now Plan "A"; 
Age Security Plan, now called Plan "B"; and Variable Benefit Plan, now 
Plan "C". 

Information on the new Protection Program may be obtained from 
the annuity secretary in our state or from the Development Division, An- 
nuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, 511 North Akard Building, 
Dallas, Texas 75201. 

Because of action taken by the trustees of the Annuity Board in Febru- 
ary, each person receiving a guaranteed benefit from the Board was mailed a 
"dividend" check. This year each check was for an amount equal to one- 
twelfth of the person's annual benefit. These checks were made possible be- 
cause of excess interest earnings. Approval was given to mail these dividend 
checks annually, providing the Board realizes an excess in interest earnings. 

In 1966, more than $4,256,244 was paid in age retirement, disability or 
widow benefits to persons who had participated in the Protection Program. 
The checks vary in amounts, depending on the length of service and the 
amount of dues paid into the Program by the member. 

The cost of living continues to climb. A retirement program based on 
$4,000 salary is no longer adequate to meet the needs of a minister when he 
retires. There seems to be no hope of a leveling off of the inflationary trends. 
Because of this, the new Protection Program was started so churches could 
help their pastors increase their retirement protection. Now a church may 
participate on the total salary of its pastor or other employees. Ten per cent 
dues on total salary are recommended as a minimum. 



32 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

As of December 31, 1966, some 1,492 persons had joined Plan "A" 
of the Program. A total of 18,328 churches were providing the Protection 
Program for their ministers and staff members. Almost 12,600 of these 
churches were paying both member and church dues. 

In many churches more than one person is in the Program. Each person 
is counted separately as in his church. As a result the total number of 
churches is higher. Next year, the total number of churches is expected to 
be less. The reason is the Board is putting all its records on computer which 
will group together all members in one church. For example, if a church 
has two members, it will be counted as one church instead of two as is 
presently being done. 

There are 137 of the 176 agencies in the state conventions and the 
Southern Baptist Convention which have Protection Programs with the 
Board. A total of 8,121 persons are protected in the agency programs. 

Rev. Guy Cain promotes the Protection Program in North Carolina. 
He is jointly employed by the Annuity Board and North Carolina Baptist 
Convention. For information about any of the plans in the Protection Pro- 
gram contact Rev. Guy Cain, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 
27603, or write the Annuity Board, SBC, 511 North Akard Building, Dallas, 
Texas 75201.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

As of October 1, 1966, there were enrolled in the North Carolina 
Baptist colleges 11,347 students. This represents approximately the same 
number enrolled last year. Limited facilities, both in housing and in instruc- 
tion, have made it necessary to turn away many qualified students. Enrol- 
ments are as follows: Campbell, 2,267; Chowan, 1,234; Gardner-Webb, 
1,262; Mars Hill, 1,371; Meredith, 930; Wake Forest University, 3,022; and 
Wingate, 1,561. 

The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina supports a unique 
program of Christian higher education. There are three senior colleges: 
Campbell, Buie's Creek; Mars Hill, Mars Hill; and Meredith, Raleigh; Wake 
Forest University, Winston-Salem; and three junior colleges: Chowan, Mur- 
freesboro; Gardner-Webb, Boiling Springs; and Wingate, Wingate. 

The Baptist colleges in North Carolina and elsewhere in the Southern 
Baptist Convention continue to train the vast majority of the church voca- 
tional workers. Currently, there is the same concern in our colleges that is 
being expressed throughout our Convention about the decline in the number 
of young people answering the call to full-time Christian service. The 
Christian colleges, through the Council, are currently seeking ways and means 
of cooperating more fully with local churches in an effort to reverse this 
trend. However, the Christian college is not solely in the business of training 
full-time Christian workers, for the vast majority of students attending a 
Baptist college will return to their communities as laymen. Sometimes we 
tend to overlook the vital contribution of lay-leadership trained in our 
Christian colleges. These men and women return to their communities not 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 33 

only to assume responsibilities in the local church, but to bear a Christian 
witness through their professions in the communities where they work. 

The Baptist colleges in North Carolina continue to be grateful to the 
Cooperative Program and its vital financial support. For the year 1967, 
$1,578,960 has been budgeted. Of this amount, Campbell College is to re- 
reive $258,634; Chowan, $154,870; Gardner- Webb, $147,127; Mars Hill, 
$223,014; Wake Forest, $379,432; Wingate, $162,614; and Council expense, 
$30,255.

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

Does your church have a definite plan for getting information on the 
Baptist world wide mission effort to your church members? 

Is there any definite plan to acquaint the membership with Baptist doc- 
trine and policy? Do your members have any way of knowing what other 
churches are doing and what is being done through cooperative efforts? Is 
there any systematic plan for placing good Christian literature in the homes? 
Do your deacons and church officers have a regular source of information as 
they help shape the policies of your church? Is there a planned way to get 
accurate information and helpful suggestions to your church leaders? 

The simplest and most economical way to get all this information into 
the home of your members is through the BIBLICAL RECORDER. Under 
the Church Budget Plan, this can be done for only 4c a week. 

Consider just one thing the RECORDER did this year: In reporting 
accurately and courageously the doings of the General Assembly in Raleigh, 
the RECORDER performed a significant service for Baptists, as well as other 
denominations. A number of daily newspapers, including the Charlotte 
Observer, credited the RECORDER with being a major factor in the defeat 
of a liquor by the drink bill. But we cannot sit back and relax. Supporters 
of liquor by the drink have warned that they will be back to push their 
cause in the 1969 General Assembly. The RECORDER will be there to 
keep you posted and to urge you to act. 

As another example of service to its readers, the RECORDER is con- 
tinuing to run both Sunday School lessons — the Uniform lessons and the 
Life and Work Curriculum lessons. Outstanding writers have been secured 
to do these lessons. 

In addition to the weekly ministry in nearly 89,000 homes, the 
RECORDER editor now writes a weekly religious newscast which is heard 
on more than 75 stations throughout the state. The Radio-Television Com- 
mission produces and distributes the program. This is another opportunity 
to spread the good news of the Gospel. 

Nothing else can take the place of the BIBLICAL RECORDER in Bap- 
tist life. If you doubt this, try it in your church.

Mrs. Earl Teague

ASSOCIATIONS EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

The Executive Committee of the Association held three meetings during 
the past year. No special meetings were called. The Moderator presided at 
each meeting, and the Clerk recorded the minutes. Each meeting was opened 
by Scripture reading and prayer. Below is a brief summary of the actions 
taken: 



MAY 2, 1967: 

Reports of activities were heard from the various organizational heads. 
A motion was submitted by the Trustees, and approved by the committee, 
that we reject with love and appreciation the property offered the Associa- 
tion by Mrs. Charles Echerd and Miss Lucy Echerd and that we buy a track 
of land three and one-half miles south of Taylorsville on Highway 16 and 
a store building to be used as an office, at a total cost of S 14,900. The 
Trustees were authorized to use what funds the Association now has in the 
treasury and to secure the balance for the building and lots plus enough to 
remodel the building. The Executive Committee approved a recommenda- 
tion made by the Fellowship Committee that the Mountain Ridge Baptist 
Church be placed under watch-care of our Association for one year. A motion 
passed that we begin participation in the "Crusade of the Americas" on 
April 6, 1969. 

JULY 31, 1967: 

The Trustees mentioned that the new property is being remodeled. 
Half-interest in a well was bought for the Association for $400. The Nomin- 
ating Committee read the names of new officers for 1967-68. Reports of ac- 
tivities were heard from the department heads. A motion was approved that 
we ask the Missions Committee to look for an opportunity to secure an as- 
sociational missionary on a part-time basis. 

SEPTEMBER 25, 1967: 

A report was given by the Trustees of the work and expenditures on the 
new office building. The proposed order of business for the Annual Associ- 
ation was presented and approved. A motion passed that the Annual As- 
sociation be one week later than that specified in the Constitution, this 
motion to be presented to the Annual Association. The Executive Committee 
voted to make a recommendation to the Association that the Association 
authorize the Missions Committee to call an Associational Missionary with 
the approval of the Executive Committee. The 1967-68 budget, in the 
amount of $7,525 was presented and approved. A motion was passed that 
we increase the amount budgeted for Central Training School from $200 
to $300, which made the budget $7,625. The completed program for Central 
Training School was presented with this year's emphasis on the Sunday 
School. 

The Clerk, the Moderator, and the Associational office have complete 
minutes of the above meetings on file.

ASSOCIATIONS. MISSIONS REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

We have been much in prayer for the day when we could have the 
services of a full-time missionary. We feel that the time is near at hand 
when this prayer will be fulfilled. At the last Executive Committee meeting, 
a recommendation was made that we ask the Association to authorize the 
Missions Committee to call an Associational Missionary with the approval 
of the Executive Committee. 

The Association will need the support of each church to carry out this 
recommendation. In 1964 the Executive Committee of the Association voted 
unanimously to request all churches to consider giving 39? of regular offer- 
ings for associational mission work. We would like to urge again that each 
church try to set this goal for itself. 

One great accomplishment has come about in the securing of an asso- 
ciational office building and lot located on Highway 16. The office should 
be opened in October. We hope in the future a home may be built for an 
associational missionary. 

We have been blessed another year with the continued services of Mrs. 
Walter Howell as our promotional secretary and her assistance in many other 
ways to further associational work. 

Since the death of Mr. A. E. Watts in 1964, who was our Associational 
Missionary, the associational office has remained in the home of Mrs. A. E. 
Watts rent-free, along with furnishing the lights, heat, telephone and in- 
surance, and she has also frequently assisted Mrs. Howell with her work. 
We say to Mrs. Watts, "Your kindness is accepted with profound gratitude."

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The primary aim of the Sunday School for 1967-68 continues to be 
reaching and teaching people. It is the purpose of the Associational Sunday 
School Department to promote these aims and to assist wherever possible in 
the churches. 

As this report is written records for last year are not available, but 
records of recent years indicate that at least one-third of our church mem- 
bership is absent from Sunday School on any given Sunday. We believe this 
ought to be improved. It is for this reason, plus the fact that there are so 
many in our midst that are unsaved, that we major on outreach continually. 
We urge our church members to give heed to the importance of their own 
attendance and to seek to enlist others in the Bible study the Sunday School 
offers. 

Our Vacation Bible School reports continue to be very encouraging. We 
hope these efforts will increase in the future. 

This year the Central Training School will major on Sunday School. 
This is a great opportunity for teachers, officers, and other workers as well 
as all who are interested in Bible study to enrich their knowledge of the 
Bible. We hope many will take advantage of it. 



36 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

We also would encourage every teacher to carefully consider the Sem- 
inary Extension course when it is offered. We sincerely believe this is one 
of the greatest helps to teachers that is available in our Association. 

Let us use the opportunities and materials that are within our reach to 
make our Sunday School an instrument for the glory of our Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. M. Grant 



VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL 

In a day when the children and youth of our land so sorely need train- 
ing, instruction, and summer employment, the Daily Vacation Bible School 
has become one of the outstanding means of meeting these needs. In these 
schools interested workers train; qualified teachers instruct; and planned 
programs keep children profitably employed for the duration of the school. 

Southern Baptists try to obey the Scriptural injuction, "Train up a child 
in the way he should go . . ." (Proverbs 22:6) by conducting as many as 
possible of these Bible schools every summer. During the summer of 1967, 
twenty-one of the twenty-two churches in the Alexander Association held 
Daily Vacation Bible Schools. The one church not holding a V. B. S. sub- 
stituted a three-week Bible camp for its children. 

In 1967 the total enrolment in these schools was 2,143, an increase of 
97 over that of 1966; the average daily attendance was 1917, an increase of 
65 over 1966; the number of professions was 39, an increase of 7; mission 
collections amounted to $806.49, an increase of $132.81. 

Five churches had two-week schools; the others held one week. Two 
schools, Antioch and Oxford Memorial, were Standard. All other churches 
are urged to strive to become Standard, but this goal cannot be reached with- 
out much work and planning. It is time now to start working for next sum- 
mer's standardization. 

One phase of this planning is a Vacation Bible School Clinic. The 
Alexander and Rocky Face Associations held a joint clinic at Macedonia 
Baptist Church March 14, 1967. Twenty-eight churches were represented at 
the clinic with 230 persons in attendance. Representatives also attended the 
state clinic at Wingate College.

TRAINING UNION 

These are exciting days for the ministry of Training Union. Many new 
ideas, new materials, and a new seriousness to our need for Christian training 
are coming to us through our Training Unions. 

This has been a busy year for Training Union in the Alexander Asso- 
ciation. 

1. Special projects engaged in include: Youth Rally for Intermediates and 
Young People at First Baptist in August. Youth Night at First Baptist 



AL EXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 37 

Church with 105 Intermediates and Young People attending. Youth 
Convention at First Church, Boone, with 51 Young People and Inter- 
mediates attending. 
2. Our Association was represented in the regional tournaments by Randy 
Kirby, Gregory Keller, Cherry Lail, Jackie Mecimore, Julia Martin, Cindy 
Walker, Loretta Walker, and Mrs. Blayne Hollar. 

Five people from our Association attended our North Carolina Baptist 
Assembly at Southport last summer for one of our Training Union assembly 
weeks, and twenty-six attended our Southwide Assembly at Ridgecrest. 

We have ten Training Unions in our Association with an enrolment 
of 952. We are organizing a new training program at the Millersville Baptist 
Church. There are two adult unions in our Association using the Alternate 
Organization Plan. We hope other unions will try these alternate plans. 

May I thank each of you for your prayers, assistance, and support in 
carrying on the Training Union work. I would like to pledge to you my best 
during the coming year, and beg you to support and use your Training Union 
as a means toward a more effective Christian witness through the local 
church. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Earl Teague 



MUSIC 

Music is as old as Christianity itself. Our Saviour's birth announcement 
was attended by a heavenly choir which came near the earth and sang to his 
everlasting praise and glory. 

In succeeding centuries, music has been used in Christian endeavors that 
relate to the church as it fulfills its mission through worship, proclamation, 
education and ministry. 

Hymn singing is one of the best media through which to develop, 
express, and proclaim the Christian faith. The church hymnal is a valuable 
textbook because people can learn more quickly what is set to music. Com- 
mercial advertisers have learned that to make their advertising slogans re- 
membered, they need only to set them to music. Music helps capture atten- 
tion and hold it. 

By singing the truths of the Gospel, we add the strong appeal of music 
to human emotions. Music can help to establish and develop Christian con- 
cepts, transform attitudes, and influence behavior. 

The hymnal is a Textbook of Prayer. Almost every form of prayer can 
be expressed in hymns as they call us to worship, ask for God's blessings, con- 
fess sin, and express thanksgiving and dedication. 

The hymnal is a Textbook of Christian Doctrine. Bible truths are made 
alive and meaningful through the singing of great hymns. 

It is a Textbook of Unity and Missions. Hymn singing is often the 
single bridge joining people from many nations in a service of worship. 
Music is an international language drawing all God's people close together. 

In addition to hymns for worship, we now have five church music 
magazines to use with choirs from the small children through the adults. 



38 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

"The Church Musician" for adults was first published in 1950. "The Junior 
Musician" for ages nine through twelve started in 1963. Last year we added 
"The Youth Musician" for Intermediates, "Music for Primaries" for children 
six through eight, and "Children's Music Leader." The leadership quarterly 
was designed for music workers with Beginners, Primaries, and Juniors and 
helps with planning and guiding music experience for these age groups. 

While no conscientious minister or Sunday School superintendent would 
consider providing literature for only one age group and not the others, this 
is often done for the music program. 

Now that we have a complete set of music publications to cover each 
age group, we should all try harder to give music training to the whole 
church family. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lucy Echerd, Music Director 



WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

Our Saviour has said, "Go and tell." He gave us the Great Commission. 
It is the duty of the Woman's Missionary Union, as well as all Christians, to 
obey His command. It is our desire to obey His orders and to help others 
become more interested and to work for Him. There is no greater work. 

The Associational Woman's Missionary Union was blessed by having 
two of our W. M. U. state workers teach us in our leadership training course: 
Miss Kathryn Bullard, W. M. S. Director, and Miss Linda Warren, Y. W. A. 
Director. The G. A. and Sunbeam leaders also had classes with expert teach- 
ers. All who attended were greatly blessed, as well as taught how to do their 
respective jobs. 

At our annual banquet, we had a foreign missionary to Vietnam tell us 
of his work there. In May. we had our Annual Meeting, with the election of 
officers, and a very beautiful and inspiring solo by Mrs. Jimmy Robinette. 
We also heard Rev. Jerry Potter, our North Carolina missionary to the deaf. 

We helped with two youth rallies, one of which was for the Sunbeams, 
G. A.'s and R. A.'s. The Brotherhood and W. M. U. had an afternoon and 
evening meeting for them which included recreation, supper, and a talk by 
a home missionary to Montana. All of the organizations of the Association 
had an all day meeting for the young people, beginning at 10 A.M. and 
lasting until 9 P. M. They had classes, recreation, meals, and Ned Jarrett, a 
former stock car driver, spoke on safety and told of his Christian experience. 

So this past year we have heard directly from a foreign missionary, a 
home missionary, a state missionary, and a local layman — missions on every 
level. May we learn much from these witnesses for our Saviour and do 
greater and better things for our Lord this next year than we have in the 
past. May we never be satisfied with ourselves, but always try to improve. 

We hope the churches without a W. M. U. will realize their need to 
organize so that they may do a greater work for the Master. Let us help 
in any way we can. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. A. D. Lindsey 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 39 

BROTHERHOOD 

Our work of Brotherhood in Southern Baptist churches of North Caro- 
lina is continuing to do many wonderful works for the growth of God's 
Kingdom here on earth in the hearts of men and boys. The Brotherhood work 
in the Alexander Baptist Association is not progressing as well as could be 
hoped. We are getting reports from many of our church Brotherhood organ- 
izations that interest is not good and attendance is at a low ebb. With this 
report, we want to make an appeal to the churches that have Brotherhoods 
to take a new look at the responsibilities that are theirs in regard to leading 
the men and boys of their church to a greater committment for God's work 
and a closer relationship with our Savior. To the churches of our Association 
that do not have Brotherhood organizations, we want to appeal to their 
pastors and men to seriously take a look at the work they might be doing 
toward advancing the mission program of their church in the hearts of our 
boys and men; and then, I am sure they will be led to start this work in 
their church. 

Let's all remember that Brotherhood is the only specific organization of 
our churches for leading and training men and boys in the mission program 
of our work. If the Brotherhood movement fails, our boys and men will miss 
a part of the training our Lord would want them to have.

EVANGELISM 

This past year the churches of our Association baptized 167 persons. 
This represents a ratio of one baptism for every 36 members. We are grate- 
ful to God for every person who has been brought to confess Jesus Christ 
as Lord. We call upon our churches to give themselves to the work that 
brought Christ from heaven to earth, evangelism. Evangelism is the heart 
of our churches' existence. 

Evangelism must be a two-pronged thrust. We must publicly proclaim 
that Gospel, that is the power of God unto salvation, and we must personally 
win others to Christ. "Every Christian, a Witness" must be more than a 
slogan. It must be a reality in our lives. 

Our churches face a tremendous evangelistic challenge in the Crusade 
of the Americas. This is more than just a two-week period of revivals. It is 
an emphasis on evangelism that should occupy our churches throughout 
1968-69 and 70. Our churches have been challenged by one of our mission 
fields, Brazil, to give ourselves to the work of evangelism and world missions 
for 1968-69. Some of the challenges in the Crusade of the Americas are: 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON PRAYER: Two days of prayer, 
January 14, 1968 and January 12, 1969; PACT: A program of 
"prayer partners" with individuals, groups, and churches on the 
"Other Americas" initiated in July-August 1968; Watch Night Prayer 
Service December 31, 1968. 

NATION-WIDE SEARCH FOR PROSPECTS: May-June-July- Au- 
gust 1968. 



40 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

NATION-WIDE VISITATION WITNESSING: September - No- 
vember 1968. 

NATION-WIDE CRUSADE OF THE AMERICAS REVIVALS: 

March 16-30; April 6-20; April 27-May 11, 1969. Our crusade in 
the Alexander Association is to be April 6-20, 1969. 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON NEW MEMBER ORIENTA- 
TION: Following the Crusade of the Americas Revivals. Study of 
book "Daring Discipleship" and launch new member orientation. 

SPECIAL EMPHASIS IN NORTH CAROLINA ON CHRISTIAN 
MATURITY: January 1 -December 31, 1970. 

Adequate guidance material for cooperation with and in preparation 
for the Crusade of the Americas is provided for us in the 1967-68 Evangelism 
Plan Book already available to us and in the 1968-69 Evangelism Plan Book 
which will be available after July of 1968 from the Division of Evangelism, 
301 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, North Carolina 27603.

REPORT OF THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

On May 21, 1967 the Fellowship Committee went to the Mountain 
Ridge Baptist Church, at their request, and met with some of the church 
leaders to discuss their request for membership in the Alexander Baptist 
Association. We spent about two hours in discussion. The church was or- 
ganized in I960 and has 44 members. They have services every Sunday. The 
pastor at that time was Richard Bumgarner, but since that time the church 
has called a new pastor, Finley McCoury of Route 7, Lenoir. It was the 
feeling of the Fellowship Committee that we should consider this applica- 
tion for membership in our Association, and recommendation to this effect 
was made to the executive committee.

SEMINARY EXTENSION 

The Seminary Extension Department offered classes in New Testament 
122 each Thursday evening, February 2 — March 6, 1967, at the First Baptist 
Church. Using Metzgers book, THE NEW TESTAMENT, ITS BACK- 
GROUND, GROWTH, AND CONTENT, fifteen students were enrolled 
representing five churches in our Association (Smyrna, Pilgrim, Pleasant 
Hill, First, and Hiddenite) and one in the Theron Rankin Association 
(Springs Road). Ten of the students completed the course. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 41 

One of the greatest needs of our Association is a depth study of the 
Bible by our people. Let's all work toward and pray for the day when every 
church will be represented in our extension work.

you will remember that the well was not in our original estimate, but we felt 

it should not be passed up.

TRAINING 

The highlight of our training program for 1966-67 was the Central 
Training School at East Taylorsville from October 24 through October 27, 
1966. Local teachers, assisted by state workers, provided us with a good 
week of study with the emphasis placed on better work in our mission or- 
ganizations. A total of seventeen classes enrolled 16 1 persons from twenty 
churches. Average attendance was 131. 

State workers again will assist in this year's Central Training School, 
scheduled for October 23-26, 1967 when the emphasis will be focused on 
the Sunday School. Sunday School officers and teachers are especially en- 
couraged to attend. Classes are being planned for every member of the 
family.

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Southern Baptist missionaries were under appointment to 65 countries 
or political entities on May 1, 1967. During 1966 a couple took up residence 
in Ivory Coast, and a couple was appointed for Morocco. Missionaries, ap- 
pointed in early 1967, are awaiting permission to enter Ethiopia and Bots- 
wana 

At the close of 1966 the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board had 
an overseas missionary staff of 2,208. This included 65 missionary associates, 
7 special project nurses, and 92 missionary journeymen. Appointments dur- 
ing the year totaled 207 (131 career, 20 associates, 48 journeymen, 3 special 
project medical persons, and 5 reappointed). Between January and May 
1967, 45 more were added. 

At the year's end there were 4,707 churches (3,076 self-supporting), 
6,542 mission points, and 3,904 national pastors related to our Southern 
Baptist work. These reported 51,680 baptisms, 528,958 church members, 
and 604,487 enrolled in Sunday School. China, closed to missionaries at 
present, was last estimated as having 392 churches and 123,000 members 
related to our mission work. 

The 1,181 schools related to our Missions in 41 countries had an en- 
rolment of 185,050 students and administrators. Among the schools are 43 
theological institutions with 1,559 students and 6 women's training schools 
with 603 enrolled. 

Book stores and reading rooms on our mission fields are confronting 
hundreds with the Christian message. Literature in the language of the 
people has become increasingly important for evangelism, leadership train- 
ing, and Christian education. 

Our 23 publication centers overseas and at El Paso, Texas, (Spanish) 
produced over 21 million pieces: tracts, books, periodicals, Bibles, hymn 
books. Staffing these centers were 68 missionaries and 530 nationals. The 
Commission, foreign missions journal of the Board, reported an average cir- 
culation of 95,182 in 1966. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 43 

Medical mission institutions include 20 hospitals and 56 clinics and 
dispensaries, with a total of 1,391 beds. In 1966 there were 102 national and 
62 missionary physicians serving with 312 national and 60 missionary nurses. 
They treated 589,055 patients. Engaged additionally in the medical ministry 
were 870 nationals and 40 missionaries. 

Nineteen good will and community centers in 11 countries reach 
people in varied ways: literacy classes, homemaking courses, Bible study 
clubs, and evangelistic services. Staffed by 25 missionaries and 104 nationals, 
these centers enrolled 7,959 children and adults. In 13 children's homes, 4 
missionaries and 99 national workers cared for 793 boys and girls. 

Total contributions of Southern Baptists for foreign missions amounted 
to $27,047,200 as 1966 closed (an increase of $2,063,276 over 1965). The 
1966 Lottie Moon Christmas offering had reached a total of $13,760,146.80 
by May 1, 1967. Still, needs continue to be far beyond financial resources. 
Unfilled requests from the Missions for urgently needed land, equipment, and 
buildings amounted to several million dollars.

HOME MISSIONS 

Someone has said, "When we rely upon organization, we get what 
organization can do. When we rely upon education, we get what education 
can do. But when we rely upon prayer, we get what God can do." God has 
done mighty things through your Home Mission Board with the support of 
your prayers, study, training, giving, and local missionary actions. In this 
effort you have helped to support over 2,500 missionaries who are at work 
in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Panama, and Cuba, though serious obstacles 
persist in Cuba. God-called men and women are sent to unchurched and 
underchurched areas, to fields where the churches cannot meet the needs 
unaided, and to fields where workers with special gifts are needed. Urgent 
needs for missionary personnel continue in language missions, metropolitan 
missions, and pioneer mission work. 

You have helped to make advance possible through the starting of 
new missions, the constituting of new churches, and the beginning of new 
ministries to the underprivileged. Through all of these avenues you have 
helped to express Christian love and point people to Christ as their Savior 
and Lord. Most service of the Home Mission Board is rendered within a 
framework of cooperative missions with the state conventions. The Board 
and its staff can only do as we give our support through the Cooperative 
Program and through the Annie Armstrong Offering. 

The Annie Armstrong Offering for 1967 will help to get ready for the 
Crusade of the Americas in 1969. We must begin now to give more to 
Home Missions if we are concerned over the spiritual plight of the people 
in our country. Dr. Fred Moseley of the Home Mission Board has said, "If 
we have a worthy crusade in North America, the fires of revival must be 
kindled throughout the land." 

May God continue to bless and use our Home Mission efforts for Christ 
and His kingdom. We can always be proud of our Home Mission Board and 
its ministry which touches every state in our Southern Baptist Convention.

STATE MISSIONS 



"Come over and help us" is the plea of an estimated 2 million, or one- 
half of the population in North Carolina, who do not profess any church 
affiliation. Reaching out and aiding other people is the key to success in the 
new dimensions of State Missions. State Missions endeavors to lead people to 
Christ and lead professing Christians to grow in grace and in favor with 
God and man. 

A prisoner who had been won to Christ by a ministry of State Missions 
stated, "When I get up each morning I determine that I will give a little 
bit of myself to every person with whom I come in contact. This has made 
my life abundant and rich — physically, mentally, and spiritually — beyond 
my wildest dream of some months ago." New frontiers in State Missions are 
opened by your love. This deepens and enlarges our Christian witness in 
prisons and correctional institutions across the state. Our missionaries bring 
a ray of hope to these who are often deprived of the finer things of life. 
Through State Missions you are reaching out and helping these people. 

Many people are surprised when they learn there are about three thou- 
sand Japanese wives of American service men in Camp Lejeune, Cherry 
Point, and Fort Bragg in North Carolina. The power of the love demon- 
strate^ by North Carolina Baptists is adding new dimensions to the lives of 
these Japanese women. 

Training, teaching, and preaching is opening new vistas for the deaf. 
Time after time the tired, dispirited, jaded, and often discouraged deaf 
people have reviewed their accomplishments only to recognize that life with- 
out Christ is empty and meaningless. The missing ingredient is the sort of 
abiding faith that supports a man in every facet of his life. Your missionaries 
to the deaf, through a program of training, teaching, and preaching, are 
answering the needs of each deaf person as fast as time and opportunity will 
permit. Through these state missionaries you are helping to produce a 
weekly television program for the deaf. Through these home missionaries 
and those they have trained you interpret revivals for the deaf to hear, you 
teach Sunday School classes, you interpret worship services, and by many 
other means you bring new dimensions into the life of the deaf. 

A new day is dawning in the life of many churches and in the hearts 
of many people because of the Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute where addi- 
tional training is provided for pastors already in service. Through State Mis- 
sions you support this vital ministry. 

"Whom shall I send and who will go for us?" Isaiah 6:8. We can go 
helo in the harvest of the state mission fields by opening new frontiers and 
adding new dimensions to those in prison, to the stranger within the gates 
of North Carolina, the deaf, to many churches through the pastors trained 
at Fruitland, and through the many other facets of State Missions. This de- 
dicated State Missions money from your special offering and the Cooperative 
Program is saving men from despair and suffering. Christ is redeeming men 
from sin through your state missionaries. May we pray fervently and give 
generously to this great cause in our state. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 45 



COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

In the first six months of 1967 the 23 churches of the Alexander Baptist 
Association gave $17,296.20 through the Cooperative Program. Of the 
twenty-two, eight gave nothing. Many of these churches receive thousands 
of dollars but never prove themselves good stewards by being missionary in 
their gifts. The Cooperative Program is the Life Line of missionary activities 
and pastors. If we intend to honor our name of Missionary Baptists, then by 
necessity some of us must change our ways or do better at the job of sup- 
porting the work of Christ through the Cooperative Program. 

The Cooperative Program in one year supports 2,208 foreign mission- 
aries, 2,165 home missionaries, provides for 4,864 students in seminaries, 
helps 11,347 students in seven N. C. Baptist Colleges, helps provide a home 
for 172 aged people in N. C, helped minister to 51,950 patients at Baptist 
Hospital, helped care for 609 in our Children's Homes and foster homes, 
provides a ministry to silent people, Indians, military personnel, summer 
camps, and many other causes of Christ. 

Because of the world's needs and that fields are white unto the harvest, 
go home and pray, and urge your church to be a part of the "World Mission 
Program of Southern Baptists. 

Can you and I, as a Christian, and can we as churches, feel alright in 
our hearts when our missionaries leave all to follow Christ and we give little 
or nothing to support them? Let's stop our nonsense and even hypocrisy — 
Let's give to win the world and until you recommend a better way. let's give 
through the Cooperative Program. Read the materials for yourself! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Oliver C. Price

ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



CONSTITUTION OF THE 
ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

PREAMBLE : We, the messengers of Missionary Baptist Churches 
in the County of Alexander, State of North Carolina, do hereby 
propose to establish and maintain the order and rules of a district 
Baptist Association in conformity to the following plan : 

Article I. NAME 

The name of the body shall be the Alexander Baptist Asso- 
ciation. 

Article II. PURPOSE 

The purpose of this Association shall be to counsel together 
for the enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom and for 
the promoting of unity and growth among the churches related to 
the Association. To this end the Association will cooperate with 
the North Carolina Baptist State Convention and the Southern 
Baptist Convention and their agencies in the work of Missions, 
Christian Education, and Social Service. 

Article III. MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1 : The Alexander Association shall be composed of 
the pastor and three messengers from each Missionary Baptist 
Church that voluntarily cooperates as the Alexander Baptist 
Association, the general officers of the Association, chairmen of 
standing committees, and the pastor and messengers from any 
church that may hereafter be recognized as a cooperating church 
by the Association. 

Section 2 : A cooperating church shall be defined as follows : 

a. One that shares the missionary spirit of the Association, 

b. Elects and sends messengers to the annual meeting, 

c. Contributes financially to the work of the Association each 
year, and 

d. Provides an annual report to the Association upon the forms 
provided by the Associational Clerk. 

Section 3: Any church may sever its working relationship 
with the Association at any time it chooses. Likewise, the Associa- 
tion may refuse to continue recognition of a church as a cooperating 
church when for two consecutive years without sufficient reason 
that church does not meet the stipulations stated in Section 2, or 
when for any other reason, approved by the Association in annual 
session, a church is considered by intent and action to be a liability 
to the fellowship and work of the Association. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Section 4: Churches desiring to relate themselves to the 
Association in its work and fellowship may do so by adhering to the 
following procedure: 

a. Make application to the Associational Fellowship Committee 
for recognition as a cooperating Baptist church, such appli- 
cation to be made at least three months before the annual 
meeting of the Association. 

b. Furnish the Fellowship Committee the information required 
in the annual letter of churches to the Association, plus 
such other information as the Committee may request for 
properly evaluating the application. 

c. Upon recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and 
approval by the Association in annual session a church may 
come under the watch care of the Association for a period 
of one year. At the end of one year of watch care relation- 
ship and upon recommendation of the Fellowship Committee 
and approval by the Association, a church may be recognized 
as a cooperating church eligible to all privileges and 
responsibilities of a church cooperating in the work of the 
Alexander Association. 

d. During the period of watch-care relationship a church shall 
meet the stipulations of Section 2 above. 

e. In the case of new churches which anticipate a working 
relationship with the Association, duly elected representa- 
tives of the proposed church shall consult with the Moder- 
ator and Fellowship Committee of the Association relative to 
the need for another church, its location, and its proposed 
ministry. Upon the recommendation of the Fellowship 
Committee the Executive Committee shall authorize such 
other assistance as is requested by the church or deemed 
necessary by the Executive Committee in developing a 
cooperating Missionary Baptist Church. 



Article IV. MEETINGS 

Section 1 : The Association shall meet annually on Wednesday 
after the third Sunday of October and continue for two days

and continue through September 30.

ciation between annual sessions. It shall meet quarterly and at any

is based on the amount it will take to retire the debt on the Missionary 
Office. 

In addition to the $1,200.00 appropriation in the suggested budget, all 
unused budget funds would be used to help retire the debt on the missionary 
office.

Baptist and Mt. Olive, for their gracious hospitality extended to 
us during this annual session. 

3. We would like to say thanks to everyone who had an active part

who has made this wonderful Association with His children pos- 
sible. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: 

5. That we do here and now reaffirm our resolution, adopted at 
our seventy-eighth annual session, in opposition to the establish- 
ment of liquor stores and the sale of alcoholic beverages, and that 
this be reaffirmed each year and that this resolution be published 
in our local newspapers and that the expenses be paid out of our 
associational funds. Be it further resolved that we urge merchants 
to examine their literature and keep it Christian.

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES 

The past year in your Baptist Homes for the Aging has been one of the 
most eventful in the history of the Homes. Of primary significance was the 
opening of the Yanceyville Home on November 1, 1967, and dedicatory 
services on April 25, 1968, with Governor Dan K. Moore as the principal 
speaker. 

When the Yanceyville Home, accommodating 31 residents, is filled to 
capacity, the number living in all our Homes will reach 200. Residents at 
Yanceyville, Resthaven, the Albemarle Home, the Hayes Home, the Hamil- 
ton Home, and the Infirmary constitute a large and ever-growing family of 
elderly people who receive compassionate and tender care. 

The waiting list for admission to one of our five Homes continues to 
grow, but has been revised and is a bit more realistic than ever before. The 
opening of the Yanceyville Home has relieved the pressure greatly on this 
waiting list, and persons are encouraged to make application from the var- 
ious sections of our great State. 

Baptist of North Carolina can be grateful for their record in ministering 
to the residents in their five Homes for the Aging. Recent reports reveal 
that our Baptist Homes for the Aging are giving more financial assistance 
to their needy aging than any other denominational Home in North Caro- 
lina. About 859? °f tne residents ministered unto receive assistance through 
the love gifts of North Carolina Baptist. These love gifts from our Baptist 
Churches come from two main sources; ( 1 ) The Special Day Offering, re- 
ceived on the 3rd Sunday of February each year, from which the Homes 
derive 22 Vi' \ of their total support; (2) The Cooperative Program from 
which we receive 121V ; of total income. Gifts for 1967 through these two 
sources were at an all time high and amounted to around $200,000.00. The 
1968 Special Day Offering at this time, is reflecting an encouraging increase. 
Unless these two vital sources of income are increased considerably, your 
Baptist Homes cannot be maintained, either on the basis of quality of care, 
or quantity. 

More than in any previous years the ministery of the Homes has been 
extended beyond the day to day care of the residents to our local churches 
and communities. Experiences have been shared in more than one Associa- 
tion, in World Missions Conferences, Family Life Conferences, High School 
classes in Family Living, etc. 

Life among the residents in the Homes is most interesting, and if one 
wonders about activity among those whose average age is 80, let him come 
and see. Let everyone who is contributing to this great area of human need 
be grareful to the Lord to be a part of a great denomination that has had 
the vision to plan for the aging, and is moving forward in meeting the needs 
of this very deserving group.

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

This is a period in history when some church publications are struggling 
to exist. Smaller circulation, rising cost of publication, mergers, and other 
factors are creating hardships for many publications. 

Your BIBLICAL RECORDER is not immune from some of these prob- 
lems, but there is a brighter side to its ministry. In January, the RECORDER 
had its 135th birthday so this indicates it is durable and hardy. While circu- 
lation did not set any new records in the past year, a healthy gain was noted. 
Inflation, accompanied by increased printing costs, caused the RECORDER 
to have to buckle its belt, necessary economy steps were well-accepted by 
our Baptist people. One of these was to let the churches pay the state sales 
tax, thus saving the RECORDER nearly $5,000 a year. 

There is every indication that the RECORDER is contining to be read 
closely. Letters to the editor reflect this growing interest on the part of 
readers. This is healthy and is one of the strong points of Baptist democracy. 
The RECORDER runs well over 200 letters a year, many of them expressing 
strong feelings on a variety of subjects. Baptists are individualists and since 
this is part of our heritage, the RECORDER is glad to receive letters on 
the issues facing Christians today. There must be dialogue among Baptists 
and the RECORDER is glad to serve our denomination in this capacity. 

The tragedy is that more of our Baptist people don't get the RECORD- 
ER. Although hundreds of churches send it to every home, there are too 
many churches that do not have it in the budget. Frequently the interest 
and hard work of one person can mean the difference. Try it and see. 

The RECORDER staff rededicates itself to the job of getting out the 
best paper possible in these days of serious upheaval. Speaking the truth in 
love is the goal of the RECORDER at all times. The support of all Baptists 
is needed in carrying out this objective.

ANNUNITY BOARD OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION 

Response to the new Program has been good. During 1967, 3,146 
members joined some part of the three-plan Program. The plans in the Pro- 
tection Program are: Plan "A," formerly called the Southern Baptist Protec- 
tion Plan, and the plan in which benefits were increased and new ones added; 
Plan "B," the Age Security Plan; and Plan "C," the Variable Benefit Plan. 

Information about the Protection Program, including the "grace period" 
provision, may be obtained from the annuity secretary in your state at the 
Baptist Building, or from the Development Division, Annuity Board, SBC, 
5 1 1 North Akard Building, Dallas, Texas 75201. 

For the second consecutive year, all persons receiving a life benefit were 
mailed a "13th" check. Each check was for an amount equal to 12 per cent 
of his annual benefit. These checks were made possible because of interest 
earnings in excess of what the plans required. The trustees approved, two 
years ago, the issuance of the 13th checks, providing the Board realized such 
excess interest earnings. 



26 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Inflation continues to affect the buying power of the dollar for everyone 
including those who have retired. No sign of a leveling off period of the 
inflationary trend is indicated. The Protection Program is designed to help 
any church provide as much retirement income for the minister and staff as 
it desires. Many churches are moving to ten cent dues on total salary, recom- 
mended as a minimum by the Annuity Board and state convention secre- 
taries. 

As of December 31, 1967, 1,202 new members had been issued certi- 
ficates in Plan "A" of the Protection Program. A total number of 17,400 
churches were providing the Program for their ministers. 

Of the 174 agencies in the state conventions and the Southern Baptist 
Convention, 145 were providing the Program. The total number of employees 
covered in the agency programs was 7,140. The Churches in our Association 
participating in the retirement program are Antioch, Bethlehem, East Tayl- 
orsville, Hiddenite, Macedonia, Millersville, Oxford Memorial, Pleasant Hill, 
Stony Point, Taylorsville First, and Smyrna. 

Rev. Guy Cain promotes the Protection Program in North Carolina. 
He is jointly employed by the Annuity Board and North Carolina Baptist 
Convention. For information about any of the plans in the Protection Pro- 
gram contact Rev. Guy Cain, 310 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, North Caro- 
lina, or write the Annuity Board, SBC, 511 North Akard Building, Dallas,

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

North Carolina Baptist and other friends of the Children's Homes are 
making possible a Christian way of life for hundreds of boys and girls who 
otherwise would be denied many of life's best opportunities. More than 
1300 children were assisted in some type of service during the past year. 

All associated with the Children's Homes are deeply grateful for every 
type of support. Co-operative Program income through the churches is in- 
creasingly important. Last year's Thanksgiving offering is the largest ever — 
now approaching $325,000. Special gifts, bequests through wills and estate 
planning provide much needed income and wonderful opportunities to invest 
in the lives of children and young people. 

Encouraging progress is being made in the capital funds campaign to 
build a home for children in Western North Carolina to be located in Hay- 
wood County between Waynesville and Clyde. It is hoped that construction 
can begin in early 1969- The Western Home, in addition to providing 
group care, will strengthen families in the Western area. 

Four family style cottages have been constructed and dedicated dur- 
ing the past year — two at Mills Home and two at Kennedy Home. Two 
additional cottages will be constructed at Mills Home during the coming 
year. Funds for these buildings have come from bequests through estate 
planning by friends of neglected and dependent children. 

The number of good Christian homes for the care of foster children is 
growing. More are needed in all sections of the State. Foster homes serve 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 27 

children of all ages and are particularly helpful for some who have special 
needs. Couples with or without children of their own, who have an abun- 
dance of love, find this to be a challenging and rewarding opportunity for 
Christian service. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and members of the staff of the 
Homes are dedicated to a program of child care that will merit the undivided 
loyalty and support of our people and that will be worthy the blessings of 
our Lord. We covenant with you to face the future as we have the past: 
to offer Christian nurture to children in distress in the name of Christ our 
Savior and Lord.

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

Through the years the Sunday School has directed its efforts at Bible 
teaching and evangelism. Its aim and purpose remains that. In the coming 
year, the Sunday School Department hopes to use its resources in cooperation 
with the "Crusade of the Americas". The aim of this Crusade is to give a 
personal witness in North and South America. 

Action Night on September 10 was planned to promote this. Rev. Wil- 
liam Cain a Missionary to the West Indies, brought a stirring message on 
this subject. He told the story of one church of less than fifty members, 
located in Latin America, who pledged themselves to see that every person in 
a community of more than one hundred thousand, received a personal wit- 
ness. Should this not challenge us to renew our efforts? Unfortunately only 
a few people of our Association heard this inspiring message. 

Our Spring Meeting was attended by a large representation of our mem- 
bers. Dr. Randall Lolley, Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Winston- 
Salem, told of an unique ministry that his church is performing to Soldiers 
and others in Vietnam. His message was illustrated with picture slides that 
he made while visiting in that country. 

We urge our people to use all possible means of making our Sunday 
School an instrument of our Churches in promoting the Gospel of Christ.

VACATJON BIBLE SCHOOLS 

Regarding Biblical teaching the law of Moses gave this emphatic com- 
mand; ". . . and thou shalt teach them diligently to thy children . . ." 

In addition to the teaching in the homes and in the Sunday School, 
Southern Baptists conduct Daily Vacation Bible schools each summer to 
give the children opportunity to learn more about God, His word, and His 
work. 

The instability of the modern home, the revolutionary teaching of many 
schools and colleges, and the growing spirit of rebellion against social stand- 
ards, law enforcement, and religious teachings on the part of youth make it 



28 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATIO N 

necessary for the church to stand firmly and to try to stem the wave of 
Communism-inspired disregard of morality, Christian beliefs, and law and 
order that is threatening to engulf this rising generation and to destroy the 
fundamentals of the American way of life. Through the Daily Vacation 
Bible School the church is trying to contribute to this worthy attempt to 
save our land from sin, infidelity, and anarchy. 

During the summer of 1968, twenty one of the twenty three churches 
in the Alexander Association held Daily Vacation Bible Schools with a total 
enrolment of 2,003. In these schools there were 24 professions of faith in 
Christ. Remembering the value Christ set on a human soul, the people who 
gave of their time and talent to conduct these schools realize that this in- 
vestment paid a higher dividend than any other investment of the year. 

The children in these schools also learned about missions and the re- 
sponsibility of each to help carry out the Great Commission, for they con- 
tributed $736.06 to missions. Who knows but that a future missionary may 
point back to one of these schools and give it credit for his decision to enter 
the mission work?

TRAINING UNION 

These are important days in the ministry of Training Union. Many new 
ideas, new materials, and a new seriousness to our need for Christian train- 
ing are coming to us through our Training Unions! 

This has been a good year for Training Union in the Alexander Associ- 
ation. Your associational Training Union director and other associational 
officers visited in three churches throughout our association this year. We 
assisted in the organization of one new Trainin Union, and six new unions. 

1. Special projects engaged in include: Youth Night and Youth Rally at 
the Bethlehem Community and the Bethlehem Church. 

We had four churches represented in the Junior Memory Work Tourna- 
ment, and one church in the Adult Scripture Reading Tournament. This 
represented eleven people in one or more tournaments. 

2. Our association was represented in the regional tournaments by Randy 
Kirby, Cherry Lail, Gregary Keller, Jackie Mecimore from the Antioch 
Church. Vickie Ichard, Kay Synder from Bethlehem. Janet Pennell, 
Oxford Memorial Church. Jeanie Martin, Cindy Walker, Loretta Walk- 
er, Terry Houpe from Hiddenite Church. 

We had three people from our association attending our North Carolina 
Baptist Assembly at Southport last summer for one of our Training 
Union Assembly weeks, and thirty five attended our Southwide As- 
sembly at Ridgecrest. 

We have ten Training Unions in our association with an enrollment of 
844! Our goal for next year is eleven Training Unions with an enrollment 
of 1,000! There are two adult unions in our association using the Alternate 
Organization Plan. 

May I urge each of you to study and stay up-to-date with the current 
Training Union materials, especially the Training Union Magazine. This is 
essential in order to know what is going on in Training Union Work. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 29 

Also, may I thank each of you for your prayers, assistance, and support 
in carrying on the Training Union work. I would like to pledge to you my 
best during the coming year, and beg you to support and use your Training 
Union as a means toward a more effective Christian witness through the 
local church.

MUSIC 

In every walk of life man has developed ways of expressing himself. In 
our time the rebellion against the established society is being expressed by 
wearing beards, dressing in sack cloth or flowing robes and many other ex- 
treme ways to be different. Musically the popular way of expressing one's 
soul is by some lonely ballad accompanied by a guitar. To many of these 
rebellious groups this music is called "soul music." 

To reach men you have to speak their language. "Soul music" to the 
Christian is that music that expresses Jesus to the soul. The popular ballad 
may be appealing to the soul today, but like all fads of self expression it 
will be off the scene tomorrow. Not so the "Soul Music" of hymns about 
Jesus. The story of Jesus is not a fad expressing only the soul of the time, 
but of all ages. 

Our year of work in the association has included a Music study taught 
in our Seminary Extension Classes by Mrs. Oliver Price. The course was 
Music 155, Fundamentals of Music, an Introduction to Basic Skills in Read- 
ing, Understanding, and Directing Music. During the week of October 7-10, 
A Central Training School was held at the East Taylorsville Baptist Church 
with music courses being taught for each age group. Mrs. Charles Brown, 
Minister of Music, Viewmount Baptist Church, Hickory taught the Young 
People and the Adults. There were courses in conducting as well as the 
fundamentals of music. 

It is the feeling of the writer of this report that if there is to be a way 
to express Jesus to people of our day and time, we'll capture their attention 
more readily through music. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Marvin Willis, Director 



EVANGELISM 

The first great responsibility of Baptists today is to proclaim the mes- 
sage of the Gospel clearly, plainly and under the empowering of the Holy 
Spirit. The second is to see that the new life and purpose of God found in 
Christ is in the foreground of all our motives, attitudes and actions in per- 
sonal cultural and organizational life and that this involves us in helping 
meet the needs of all people. To express the same things another way is to 
say evangelism is our first great responsibility and the second is to follow 
our Lord Jesus Christ obediently, as taught in the Scriptures, that the true 
fruits of evangelism may issue from our total lives. Therefore, it must be of 
utmost concern to every Spirit-filled Baptist to know there is a reliable source 



30 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



of divine knowledge found in the Bible. To preach the Gospel of Christ one 
must know what the Gospel is, and this God has revealed and written for 
us in the Bible. 

To move with God this year and next in the Crusade of the Americas 
means that we must be diligent in searching the Scriptures and proclaiming 
the glorious Gospel of Christ revealed therein; and that we must walk daily 
with God in the fellowship of prayer. Leaders in the churches must make 
sure these two most vital matters are constantly practiced in their lives and 
that these matters are always kept before the people in the churches. This 
done faithfully and sincerely day by day across the weeks and months will 
bring individuals and churches into vital relationship with God. 

It is urgently important that every church be confronted with the op- 
portunity and responsibility of participating with other Baptist across the 
Western hemisphere in prayerful concern for a spiritual awakening to be 
experienced in the simultaneous revival meetings next spring. Messengers 
of this association are therefore urged to see that every church rightly faces 
this challenge. For details on the Crusade consult the GUIDEBOOK FOR 
BAPTISTS OF NORTH CAROLINA which has been mailed to all pastors, 
Sunday School Superintendents, Training Union Directors, WMU presidents, 
and Brotherhood presidents. 

As soon as a church votes to participate, the Associational Chairman of 
Evangelism should be notified.

Henry C. Cook, Jr. 

REPORT OF THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

In our last associational meeting held with Liledoun Baptist Church, 
Oct. 12, 1967, the Mountain Ridge Baptist Church made application for 
membership in the Alexander Baptist Association and was received under the 
watchcare of the association for the period of one year according to the con- 
stitution. 

The fellowship committee of the association met October 1, 1968 and 
considered this matter and make the following recommendation. 

That the Mountain Ridge Baptist Church having met the constitutional 
requirements for membership in the Alexander Baptist Association accord- 
ing to Article III sections 2 of the constitution be received into full fellow- 
ship of the Association.

SEMINARY EXTENSION 

The Seminary Extension Department offered three centers of study to 
the churches of Alexander Baptist Association in the spring of 1968. A study 
in Music was taught by Mrs. Oliver Price at Antioch with ten enrolled. A 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 31 

class in "Christian Education", taught by Rev. Marion Powell at Taylorsville 
First Baptist had four enrolled. "The Heart of the New Testament" was 
taught by Rev. Walter Howell at Hiddenite with ten enrolled. 

We covet the prayers and effort of all the churches in the Alexander 
Association, to the end that we might have a greater participation in the 
extension work. These studies will prove, not only a spiritual enrichment 
in our own lives, but will make us a more effective witness for Him who 
would have all people come unto Him and be saved. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Dessie Meredith 



TRAINING 

The highlight of our training program for 1967-68 was the Central 
Training School at East Taylorsville from October 23 through October 26, 
1967. Local teachers, assisted by state workers, provided us with a good week 
of study with the emphasis placed on better work in our Sunday Schools. A 
total of 17 classes enrolled 188 persons from 15 churches in our association 
and two churches from the Rocky Face Association. The average attendance 
was 156. 

Dr. Claude White, our State Sunday School Secretary, Raleigh, visited 
the Training School and spoke briefly on October 24.

ASSOCIATIONS. MISSIONS REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

In September 1967, the Executive Committee of the Alexander Baptist 
Association recommended to the Annual Session that the Missions Com- 
mittee be authorized to proceed in seeking some part-time or full-time help 
in the Associational Missions Program. The Annual Session approved this 
recommendation on October 11, 1967. 

In trying to fulfill the request of the association, your Missions Com- 
mittee has made the following steps: 

1. Submitted a request to the Division of State Missions in Raleigh 
for financial assistance. We were assured that financial help in 
the amount of $1200 to $1600 would be allocated when an as- 
sociational missionary was acquired. 

2. Investigated several situations that seem to lend themselves to- 
ward a dual ministry of a church and associational work. 

We regret that, due to a change in the pastoral work of Rev. Walter 
Howell, Mrs. Howell found it necessary to submit her resignation to the 
Associational Missions Committee as of July 31, 1968. We wish to express 
our appreciation to Mrs. Howell for her years of dedicated Christian service 
as our promotional secretary. 

Upon Mrs. Howell's resignation, Mrs. Kenneth Kerley was hired on an 



32 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

interim basis to carry on the work of promotional secretary until the An- 
nual Session of October 23 and 24 could make a final decision. We therefore 
recommend: 

1. That Mrs. Kenneth Kerley be employed to serve as promotional 
secretary under the same arrangements that heretofore have been 
used. 

2. That the Resolutions Committee send words of thanks and ap- 
preciation to Mrs. Howell for her loyal and devoted service to 
this association.

ASSOCIATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

The Executive Committee met three times at the Associational office. 
Below is a brief summary of the actions taken and a full report of these 
meetings is on file at the Associational office. 
FEBRUARY 26, 1968 

The Executive Committee authorized the purchase of shrubbery for the 
planter in front of the Associational office (not to exceed $50.00) W. A. 
Benfield was taken off the list of trustees, at his request and replaced by Ken- 
neth Kerley. The committee endorsed Dwayne Coley as a recipient of 
student aid. 
MAY 27, 1968 

Various reports from the organizations were heard. Particular emphasis 
was placed on the Central Training School to be held Oct. 7-10, 1968. 
SEPTEMBER 30, 1968 

A report from the Committee on Order of Business and a report from 
the nominating Committee was adapted. The Finance Committee was in- 
structed to have a report ready by the annual meeting. Marion Powell was 
elected to serve on the finance Committee replacing Guy Rogers who has 
left our Association. At the request of W. O. "Warren, a decision of the 
method of paying bills resulted in a motion, that the heads of the organi- 
zation approve bills for their organization (up to the amount in the budget) 
and all other bills be approved by the Finance Committee or its chairman.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

This is a full year at your Baptist Hospital with more than thirty thou- 
sand sick people being given medical service and Christian ministry, and 
more than 165,000 visits being made to the clinics of the hospital. In addi- 
tion to this, more than 700 persons are receiving training in the various fields 
of medical care and Christian service, and a vast amount of medical research 
is being done in the causes and treatments of the diseases which afflict us 
and our loved ones. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 33 

The Development Program, which is greatly to increase the capacity of 
the medical center to train and to serve, is progressing on schedule. The new 
power plant is scheduled to go into operation in October. The para-medical 
school building is due to be ready by next April. It will provide the best 
in teaching facilities and make it possible to double the capacity of our nine 
schools and to add new schools. The Medical School addition is to be ready 
by September, 1969, and will allow that school to enlarge by 35 9< . Contracts 
are due to be let in October for the new patient building, which is to be 
completed in 1971. This building and the remodeling of the oldest part of 
the present plant will provide more than 200 new patient beds and greatly 
enlarged space and facilities for offices and for examinations and treatment 
of patients. 

The cost of this large Development Program is being provided by in- 
terested individuals, corporations, foundations and government agencies, 
which recognize the valuable service our Medical Center is rendering and 
the urgent need for greatly enlarging these services. 

But this is a very difficult year financially, and our hospital has been 
forced to make important changes in its financial policies. In the face of the 
mounting costs and the increasing needs of our people, the hospital has 
been struggling with a growing deficit. We have been told this for several 
years now, but the gap has continued to increase between the cost of free 
service and the money we have provided for this service. The amount of the 
free service now will have to be governed by the amount of the Mother's 
Day Fund. In view of this, financial arrangements must be made before a 
patient is admitted to the hospital, except in case of emergency. There will 
have to be a plan, including any insurance, for paying the estimated hospital 
bill, before the patient is discharged, unless the patient has been certified 
by his county welfare department or some other agency. The Mother's Day 
Fund will be used, as it has been to pay the difference between the amount 
paid by the certifying agency and the total cost of caring for the patient. 

Active North Carolina Baptist ministers will be given a 25% discount, 
and beyond this they will be charged the same as other patients. If they 
come through the clinic as service patients, they will be eligible for Mother's 
Day assistance if there is real need and other funds are not available. 

The great concern at our Baptist Hospital is for our Service Patients 
who must have financial assistance if they get the specialized care they need. 
But the hospital has come to the point that it cannot continue to operate 
without money to cover the cost of caring for the patients it serves. In view 
of these circumstances, we believe the great majority of our pastors and our 
people will understand these changes and give their full cooperation. The 
Mother's Day Offering will need to be increased greatly if our hospital is to 
fulfill its mission to our people who most need it. We want to assure our 
hospital that it can depend upon us in full measure. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter Howell

REPORT OF THE BAPTIST FOUNDATION 

We believe the Baptist Foundation, Inc., is beginning to move because 
more of our churches have set aside January as "Make Your Will Month". 
They have someone with legal experience telling our people the importance 
of a will and to answer any questions. 

It gives our church the opportunity to request that our Christian causes 
be remembered in our will. The Baptist Foundation, Inc., has been helpful 
with literature, films, etc.

HOME MISSIONS 

The emphasis on "The Church Fulfilling its Mission Through Ministry" 
has placed the spotlight on the minorities, the disadvantaged, the poor. These 
have been brought to our attention as objects of divine love and as persons 
we ought to reach for Christ. We now move to the climatic emphasis on 
"The Church Fulfilling Its Mission Through Evangelism and World Mis- 
sions". The Crusade of the Americas and Project 500 will magnify the ulti- 
mate purpose of all home mission work — to lead people to know and follow 
Christ. "We face the future with the prayer that this agency may be used 
increasingly to develop in America a nation whose God is the Lord and to 
build an enlarging foundation for the spread of the gospel. 

The Christian task in the homeland grows with each passing day. The 
population has passed 200 million. By 1980 it is expected to reach 242 mil- 
lion. Migration from central cities to suburbs will continue, as doubtless will 
problems of poverty, racial tension, and public and private morality. More 
than seventy-five million people in the United States are unchurched. Our 
national involvement around the world constitutes a heavy burden. We 
must pray and work for a renewal of spiritual vitality, a revival of Christian 
faith. 

Our home mission board has 3,006 workers ( including 740 summer 
workers). Miss Emilyn Wagner, of our Alexander Association worked with 
the Christian Service Corps during the summer months of 1968. 

The Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Offering provided 
the largest support in the history of the agency this year. 16 churches in the 
Alexander Association gave designated amounts to the Home Mission Board 
which amounted to $2,799.00. 

We pray God will continue to bless and use our Home Mission efforts.

COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

The Cooperative Program of World Missions is the foundation for

the hub. Associational, state, home, foreign missions, Christian Education, 
Children Homes, homes for the aged, Bible Societies, Temperance Leagues, 
etc., are the spokes. The cooperative program is the tire which balances the 
program and makes the wheel run evenly. Is your tire flat? 

Last year 17 churches in our Association gave $35,445.00 to the pro- 
gram but 6 gave nothing. During the first six months of this year 15 
churches gave $18,000 but 9 gave nothing. Christ said, "For I was hunger- 
ed, and you gave me meat; I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; I was a 
stranger and you took me in; naked, and you clothed me; I was sick and 
you visited me; I was in prison and ye came unto me". Matthew 25:35-36. 

The Cooperative Program is a good investment. Last year the program 
had less than 6.5 million dollars. With this they were instrumental in win- 
ning over 66,000 souls to Christ at $100.00 each. Our local churches spent 
over a half million dollars on our own programs and baptized 173. This 
comes to over $3,000.00 each. The purpose of the church is to win the lost. 
Are we getting the job done effectively? It looks like the Cooperative Pro- 
gram is doing much better — 30 times better. 

Through the Cooperative Program, we help support over 6,000 state, 
home and foreign missionaries; train leaders for God in 1140 foreign, home 
and state Christian schools. Through it we help support 65 Baptist hospitals 
and 56 clinics. More than 900,000 patients are treated annually. Eight thou- 
sand homeless children and 1200 elderly people are cared for in 55 orphan- 
ages and homes throughout the world. 

Let us pray for and give to these worthy causes. May the pastors and 
leaders encourage the people to tithe. Some say that we are under Grace 
not the law. Christ said "I come not to destroy the law but to fulfill it". 
Which will you give ear to? As we worship with tithes and offerings Sunday 
by Sunday and as our church channels a worthy part of its income through 
the Cooperative Program, we enter into a partnership with God and one 
another in obedience to the command, "Go . . . preach . . . teach . . .!" 

I love Him, I love Him, and this I do know. 

But how much I love Him, my giving will show. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter Harrington 



STATE MISSIONS 

Missions in my state originated before the organization of a Baptist 
State Convention. The gospel of Christ was shared with others and new 
churches were organized by men and women who knew what it was to sacri- 
fice for their faith. Our forefathers wisely recognized they could do more if 
they were organized into a State Convention. In 1830 the Baptist State 
Convention was organized in the city of Greenville, North Carolina. 

Our convention is giving strong emphasis to in-service training to min- 
isters who need it through Seminary Extension. This work is done in cooper- 
ation with the Southern Baptist Convention Seminary Extension Department. 
Small scholarships are made available to those who need them. 

We have already established a vigorous and rapidly expanding Resort 
Ministry. We now have such work in six resort areas of North Carolina. 



36 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Our Ministry to the Deaf occupies a position of respect and love among 
the Baptist of our state. Classes are organized for the deaf in local churches 
throughout our state. Retreats and revivals for the deaf are held frequently. 
A television program of worship and teaching produced for the deaf is 
broadcast throughout our state weekly. The Home Mission Board joins in 
supporting this vital ministry. 

We are emphasizing Adult education of Christian leaders at Fruitland 
Baptist Bible Institute. The Institute offers excellent training for ministers 
who have not had the opportunity of a college education. Those with the 
ability and opportunity for further training are encouraged to go on to 
college and seminary. Twenty four courses are offered. One hundred and 
seventy six students have enrolled this year. We are currently ministering 
to the largest number of students since the founding of the school in 1946. 

We have a significant ministry in military areas. North Carolina has 
a heavy concentration of military personnel at Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune, 
Cherry Point, and Seymour Johnson Air Base. Financial aid is given to 
numerous churches in these areas. 

State Missions is involved in a cooperative ministry with the Home 
Mission Board in Cherokee, North Carolina. A child care center is being 
operated in the building of the Cherokee Baptist Church. The response from 
all areas of the reservation is encouraging. We hope to have a continuing 
increase in the Child Care Center. We hope to give guidance to the Chero- 
kee Church in a transition from a mission to a fullfledged Baptist Church.

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

On May 1, 1968, Southern Baptist missionaries were at work in 65 
geographical or political entities and were under appointment to 4 more, 
pending official government permission to enter. During 1967, missionaries 
went to live in Ethiopia and Botswana. A couple stationed in Luxembourg 
moved to Belgium to work with Americans and Belgians. 

At the close of 1967 the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board had 
an overseas missionary staff of 2,277. This included 91 missionary associates, 
3 special project medical personnel, and 102 missionary journeymen. Ap- 
pointments during the year total 222 ( 130 career, 32 associates, 55 journey- 
men, and 5 reappointed). Between January and May 1968, 115 more were 
added, 73 of them journeymen. 

The leading of people to new life in Jesus Christ is the ultimate purpose 
underlying all our missionary endeavors. At the years end, reports from the 
Missions (organizations of Southern Baptist missionaries) totaled 4,918 
churches (3,211 self-supporting), 6,463 mission points, and 4,119 national 
pastors. Also reported were 46,275 baptismal, 571,647 church members, and 
515,630 enrolled in Sunday School, Mainland China, closed to missionaries 
at present, was last estimated as having 392 churches and 123,000 members 
related to Southern Baptist mission work. 

The Foreign Mission Board shared in 7 major evangelistic campaigns, 
in which more than 17,000 decisions were reported. 

Amazing results continue to accompany Baptist radio and television 
efforts. Correspondence courses, sponsored through Baptist radio programs, 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 37 

enrolled thousands of people. 

The 1,295 schools (in 42 countries) with which our missionaries are 
related enrolled 181,639 students and were staffed by 6,469 national and 399 
missionary teachers and administrators. 

Book stores and reading rooms on the mission fields are confronting 
hundreds with the Christian message. Literature in the language of the 
people has become increasingly important for evangelism, leadership train- 
ing, and Christian education. 

Medical institutions included 20 hospitals and 86 clinics and dispensar- 
ies, with a total of 1,438 beds. In 1967, 145 national and 58 missionary 
physicians served with 367 national and 65 missionary nurses. They treated 
47,580 inpatients and cared for 597,711 outpatients. Engaged additionally 
in the medical ministry were 413 nationals and 43 missionaries. 

To meet urgent relief needs, the Foreign Mission Board allocated emer- 
gency funds for the assistance of victims of war and natural disasters in 12 
countries. Twenty-five good will and community centers in 14 countries 
reached people in varied ways; literacy classes, homemaking courses, Bible 
study clubs, and evangelistic services. 

Total contributions of Southern Baptist for foreign missions amounted 
to $28,286,597 as 1967 closed (an increase of $1,239,397 over 1966). The 
Lottie Moon Christmas offering had reached a total of $14,664,679-30 by 
May 1, 1968. Still, needs continued to be far beyond financial resources. 

WOMEN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

This past year we have had several meetings of importance for our 
ladies of the Women's Missionary Union. 

We had a Home Mission Study Course "Trumpets in Dixie" taught by 
four of our local ladies, Miss Emilyn Wagner, Mrs. Merl Rufty, Mrs. C. G. 
Watts and Mrs. Marvin Childers. This meeting was well attended at Mt. 
Hermans beautiful new sanctuary. 

At our dinner meeting during the Week of Prayer we had a foreign 
missionary from Vietnam speak to us. His message was most interesting and 
we had a good attendance there. Our Associational Brotherhood joined us 
in that meeting, as they do in most of our meetings. 

Miss Kathryn Bullard, our State Women's Missionary Union Director 
came to our Association on May 2 1 st to explain and answer all questions 
about our new Women's Missionary Union changes and plans. That meeting 
was held at Hiddenite Church. 

At our Annual meeting Mr. Ray Snell, Missionary from Korea, spoke. 
We elected new officers for the 1968-69 year. Miss Marcella Hines will be 
our new Director. We were presented a lovely gift by the Associational 
Women's Missionary Union for which we are most grateful and feel so 
humble to receive as it was our privilege and honor to serve. We are proud 
to be succeeded by Miss Hines and feel our Women's Missionary Union will 
go forward under her capable leadership. 

Our last meeting of the year was our Youth Rally which was sponsored 
by all of our Associational Organizations. It, also, was very successful. As 
our speaker we were fortunate in having Mr. Edwin Bullard, State Brother- 
hood Executive Secretary. He had a most interesting talk for our young 
people. 



38 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

This, being my last report, let me again express my appreciation and 
honor to have been your President. You may always know my prayers and 
best wishes will always be with our Women's Missionary Union. 

Sincerely, 

Mrs. A. D. Lindsey 

BROTHERHOOD 

Our work of Brotherhood in Southern Baptist churches of North Caro- 
lina is continuing to do many wonderful works for the growth of God's 
Kingdom here on earth in the hearts of men and boys. The Brotherhood work 
in the Alexander Baptist Association is not progressing as well as could be 
hoped. We are getting reports from many of our church Brotherhood organi- 
zations that interest is not good and attendance is at a low ebb. With this 
report, we want to make an appeal to the churches that have Brotherhoods 
to take a new look at the responsibilities that are theirs in regard to leading 
the men and boys of their church to a greater committment for God's work 
and a closer relationship with our Savior. To the churches of our Association 
that do not have Brotherhood organizations, we want to appeal to their 
pastors and men to seriously take a look at the work they might be doing 
toward advancing the mission program of their church in the hearts of our 
boys and men; and then, I am sure they will be led to start this work in their 
church. 

Let's all remember that Brotherhood is the only specific organization of 
our churches for leading and training men and boys in the mission program 
of our work. If the Brotherhood movement fails, our boys and men will miss 
a part of the training our Lord would want them to have. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. D. Lindsey 

HISTORY OF TAYLORSVILLE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH 

Taylorsville First Baptist Church was organized on October 6, 1851, 
by members of Little River Church from whom fellowship was withdrawn 
because a young preacher, John W. Jones, had joined the "Sons of Temper- 
ance ". When the vote was taken, 30 members voted to retain Jones in their 
membership. These 30 were then also excommunicated. These 31 members 
were joined by 20 others who found themselves in the same situation for 
the same reason or who were in sympathy with this group and what they 
stood for, so the Charter Members numbered 5 1 whites and four negroes. A 
bronze plaque containing the names of the Charter Members was placed in 
the vestibule of the church, presented by the descendants of the Charter 
Members, at a Centennial program celebrating the one-hundredth anniversary 
of the organization of the church which was held on October 7, 1951. 

The list of pastors begins with Smith Ferguson, 1851 to 1861. He 
was followed by F. A. Belcaer, Wm. R. Gv/altney, G. D. Sherrill, W. A. 
Poole, J. B. Marsh, J. A. White, O. W. Triplett, J. P. Gwaltney, W. R. 
Rivenbark, L. Parks Gwaltney, E. V. Bumgarner, Charles C. Holland, E. C. 
Shoe, David C. Boaz, W. B. Pittard. Marion Powell came to serve the church 
on November 17, 1963. 

The Sixth Annual Session of the Alexander Baptist Association met 
here in 1892 and the church was host again in 1913, 1925, 1944, 1952 and 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 39 

1957. It is interesting to note that in the 1913 Minutes of the Association 
the Historian stated that "Taylorsville Church has seen its days of adversity. 
For a few years its pastor was supported in part by the State Mission Board. 
It is now in a comparatively prosperous condition". 

We have no record of the first meeting place of this church but it is 
presumed it was the Courthouse. The church building has been remodeled 
and additions made through the years. 

The three story Educational Building behind the sanctuary was started 
in 1948 and the auditorium was remodeled. The Children's Building was 
begun in 1966 and extensive renovations were again made in the sanctuary. 
The front of the building was changed in 1967. 

Other church property include a cottage at Ridgecrest finished and 
dedicated on June 1, 1956. The Pastor's home was built in 1966-67 and 
dedicated in April 1967. Total church property is valued at $356,000. 

With the coming of Miss Jane Martin in Sepetmber 1967 as Music- 
Education Director, a fully graded Music program was instituted to add to 
Sunday School, Training Union, Woman's Missionary Union and Brother- 
hood programs long established. 

HISTORY OF MOUNT OLIVE CHURCH 

The first religious exercises observed at this place were held under a 
brush arbor just north of the walnut trees. 

Mount Olive Church was organized in April 1865 from members of 
Little River and Walnut Grove Churches, which makes it twenty two years 
older than the Alexander Baptist Association. 

It was first called "New Prospects" but the name was changed to "Mount 
Olive". The History of Brushy Mountain Association stated that Mount 
Olive reported at the annual meeting in October 1865. The Brushy Moun- 
tain Association met with this church in 1870. 

When the Alexander Baptist Association was formed in 1887, Mount 
Olive was one of the fifteen churches which formed the new organization. 
The church reported 150 members. At that time the By-Laws stated the 
Association would be held with each church in alphabetical order. Alexand- 
er Baptist Association first met with Mount Olive in 1894 and the minutes 
stated that the church was then erecting a new house of worship "Which 
will reflect honor and credit upon the church and community when com- 
pleted". The church was host to Alexander Baptist again in 1915 and 1927. 

In 1950 Mount Olive withdrew from Alexander Baptist Association 
and joined Rocky Face Association. In 1957 the Rocky Face Association 
met with this church. In 1958, the church rejoined the Alexander Baptist 
Association. 

The following pastors have served since the 1927 Association Minutes 
listed all who had served from the first pastor Peter Tritt to S. I. Watts, who 
was pastor in 1927: C. C. Holland 1929-32, E. V. Bumgarner 1932-37, 
Woodrow Brookshire 1937-38, W. O. Johnson 1938-40, E. V. Bumgarner 
1940-43, A. E. Watts 1943-46, D. L. Bumgarner 1946-48, Wade Rogers 
1948-51, Herman Johnson 1951-57, Wade Miller 1958-62, Guy Rogers 
1962-67. Grady Kerley came in November 1967. 

The church building was remodeled and bricked in 1953. The educa- 
tional building was added in 1964.

ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



CONSTITUTION OF THE 
ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

PREAMBLE: We, the messengers of Missionary Baptist Churches in the 
County of Alexander, State of North Carolina, do hereby propose to establish 
and maintain the order and rules of a district Baptist Association in con- 
formity to the following plan: 

Article I. NAME 
The name of the body shall be the Alexander Baptist Association. 

Article II. PURPOSE 

The purpose of this Association shall be to counsel together for the 
enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom and for the promoting 
of unity and growth among the churches related to the Association. To this 
end the Association will cooperate with the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention and their agencies in the 
work of Missions, Christian Education, and Social Service. 

Article III. MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1: The Alexander Association shall be composed of the 
pastor and three messengers from each Missionary Baptist Church that vol- 
untarily cooperates as the Alexander Baptist Association, the general officers 
of the Association, chairmen of standing committees, and the pastor and 
messengers from any church that may hereafter be recognized as a cooperat- 
ing church by the Association. 

Section 2: A cooperating church shall be defined as follows: 

a. One that shares the missionary spirit of the Association, 

b. Elects and sends messengers to the annual meeting, 

c. Contributes financially to the work of the Association each year, and 

d. Provides an annual report to the Association upon the forms pro- 
vided by the Associational Clerk. 

Section 3: Any church may sever its working relationships with the 
Association at any time it chooses. Likewise, the Association may refuse to 
continue recognition of a church as a cooperating church when for two 
consecutive years without sufficient reason that church does not meet the 
stipulations stated in Section 2, or when for any other reason, approved by 
the Association in annual session, a church is considered by intent and ac- 
tion to be a liability to the fellowship and work of the Association. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Section 4: Churches desiring to relate themselves to the Association 
in its work and fellowship may do so by adhering to the following procedure: 

a. Make application to the Associational Fellowship Committee for 
recognition as a cooperating Baptist church, such application to be 
made at least three months before the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation. 

b. Furnish the Fellowship Committee the information required in the 
annual letter of churches to the Association, plus such other informa- 
tion as the Committee may request for properly evaluating the ap- 
plication. 

c. Upon recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and approval 
by the Association in annual session a church may come under the 
watch care of the Association for a period of one year. At the end 
of one year of watch care relationship and upon recommendation 
of the Fellowship Committee and approval by the Association, a 
church may be recognized as a cooperating church eligible to all 
privileges and responsibilities of a church cooperating in the work 
of the Alexander Association. 

d. During the period of watch-care relationship a church shall meet 
the stipulations of Section 2 above. 

e. In the case of new churches which anticipate a working relation- 
ship with the Association, duly elected representatives of the pro- 
posed church shall consult with the Moderator and Fellowship Com- 
mittee of the Association relative to the need for another church, its 
location, and its proposed ministry. Upon the recommendation of 
of the Fellowship Committee the Executive Committee shall author- 
ize such other assistance as is requested by the church or deemed 
necessary by the Executive Committee in developing a cooperating 
Missionary Baptist Church. 



Article IV. MEETINGS 

Section 1 : The Association shall meet annually on Wednesday after 
the third Sunday of October and continue for two days sessions or longer, 
as seems wise to the Committee on Order of Business — subject to the ap- 
proval of the Association in session. The place of meeting shall be deter- 
mined at the previous session. 

Section 2: The associational year shall begin on October 1 and con- 
tinue through September 30. 

Section 3: The Executive Committee shall act for the Association 
between annual sessions. It shall meet quarterly and at any other time 
necessary to expedite associational business. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Article V. OFFICERS 

Section 1 : The officers of the Alexander Association shall be the 
Associational Missionary — when there is one, Moderator, Vice Moderator, 
Clerk, Treasurer, Historian, Parliamentarian, Director of Training, and Three 
Trustees. These officers, except the Associational Missionary, shall be elected 
each year by the Association at its annual meeting and shall hold office until 
their successors are elected. The Associational Missionary shall be called for 
an indefinite term of service, and may be called by the Association in an- 
nual session, or if necessary, by the Associational Executive Committee. 

Section 2: Vacancies occurring in any office between sessions of the

In 1964 the Executive Committee of the Alexander Association voted 
unanimously to request all churches to consider giving 3 % of regular of- 
ferings for Associational Mission work. The Finance Committee would 
urge again that each church try to set this goal for itself. The above item XV 
is based on the amount it will take to retire the debt on the Missionary Office. 

In addition to the 51,200.00 appropriation in the suggested budget, all 
unused budget funds would be used to help retire the debt on the missionary 
office. 

FINANCE COMMITTEE: Joe McDuffie, Chairman; Gerald Goble, 
Kenneth Kerley. 

REPORT OF THE RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

Be it hereby resolved by the Resolutions Committee of the Eighty- 
Second Annual Session of the Alexander Baptist Association has seen fit: 

1. To thank our God for His sustaining grace during this past year 
and His blessings upon us. 

2. To recognize the faithful and untiring work of W. O. Warren as 
clerk of our Association these past 13 years. 

3. To recognize the faithful work of our promotional secretary, Mrs. 
Florrie Kerley. 

4. To express our deep thanks to our host churches, Antioch and 
Lebanon, for their gracious hospitality. 

5. To reaffirm our resolution adopted by the seventy-eighth annual 
session, in opposition to the establishment of liquor stores and 
the sale of alcoholic beverages, and that this be reaffirmed each 
year and that this resolution be published in our local news- 
papers and that the expenses be paid out of our Associational 
funds. Be it further resolved that we urge merchants to examine 
their literature and keep it Christian. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: 

6. That we express our concern and opposition to the literature 
which is of immoral quality that is being proposed for use in 
teaching sex education in our schools, and that we urge that any 
sex education implemented in our schools be done only on the 
basis of moral principles being emphasized and that classes be 
taught on an unmixed basis. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Resolutions Committee

BAPTIST HOSPITAL REPORT 

Our Medical Center continues a high quality program of medical care, 
training of medical personnel, and research in the causes and treatment of 
the diseases which afflict us. In the face of serious financial problems, the 
hospital staff is working more diligently than ever to minister to our people 
in keeping with their needs and to the limit of the hospital's resources. 

The hospital has instituted more efficient admissions procedures regard- 
ing patients' financial resources and plans for payment of hospital bills. 
Trained counselors are interviewing patients and their families regarding 
advance payments which are now required and for getting more accurate 
information on those who will need help. In this way they are able better 
to discover those patients who may be eligible for medical care assistance 
through Social Services departments or other health agencies, and can start 
proceedings at once for getting these patients certified if this has not already 
been done. These agencies pay a major part of the cost for a patient they 
certify, but not the total cost, and the Mother's Day Fund must pay the 
balance. A member of the family must go to the agency and give the neces- 
sary information, and getting this done is often a real problem. Many of 
our pastors have helped in this connection and have rendered important 
service for the patients and the hospital. 

If it were not for the help which comes from these health agencies, our 
Mother's Day Fund would not last for three months. After paying the dif- 
ference between what the agencies pay and the total cost for these patients, 
the Mother's Day Offerings are used to help as many as possible of those 
who are not eligible for certification and who themselves cannot pay the 
total cost of their care. First preference must be given to those patients 
whose needs are greatest and most urgent. The free care the hospital gives 
must now be limited in keeping with the funds provided for this purpose, 
however, because the hospital cannot continue to go deeper in debt. 

It is important that our people understand that all of the Mother's 
Day Offerings and designated gifts for this ministry are used for this purpose 
alone, and the hospital makes them go as far as it possibly can. The Trustees 
and Administration of the hospital are most grateful for the fine cooper- 
ation our Pastors and our people are giving, and they earnestly solicit our 
understanding and generous support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. I. Johnson 



NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOMES 

Never before have your Baptist Homes for the Aging been more con- 
scious of the Lord's presence and of His Goodness than during the past 
year. At a time when the economy of the Homes was at its lowest ebb, with 
a sizable deficit looming larger by the moment, when the weather was at its 
severest on the 3rd Sunday of February, the day of the Special Offering, the 
churches came through with an offering that promises, at this point, to be 
the greatest in the Homes' History. The Lord, who is in charge of the 
weather and in charge of the Baptist Homes for the Aging, has surely re- 



24 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

warded our faith and moved upon our Baptist people to see the urgency of 
our needs, and we are grateful. 

Ours shall continue to be a relationship of trust in the Lord and faith 
in our Baptist people. We earnestly hope that a continued and sustained 
effort will be made by our churches to increase and strengthen the amount 
of the two main means of support for our ministry to the Aging — the Special 
Offering, and the Cooperative Program. Through these two sources, one- 
third of the total income for the Homes is derived, and 85 % of the residents, 
who are financially dependent, are cared for and supplemented. If we are to 
continue to assist these many needy persons, and if we are to reduce the 
deficit in the operation of the Homes, brought about by the rising cost of 
living, we must have more liberal support from our churches. 

We do not believe that our Baptist people would want to curtail any 
of the vital ministries of the Homes and that they will respond to this 
urgent appeal. 

Since last year, the Yanceyville Home, our newest Home, has been 
filled to capacity, and we now have almost 200 deserving older men and 
women living in our midst there and in our other four Homes — Resthaven, 
and Hayes Home, in Winston-Salem, the Albemarle Home, in Albermarle, 
and the Hamilton Home, in Hamilton. These wonderful people are finding 
much happiness in Christian companionship with persons of their age group, 
and security in knowing that they will be loved and cared for in sickness 
as well as in health. 

It is a deeply rewarding experience to see the light and joy of Christ 
on an older person's face and to hear words of deep appreciation almost 
daily for the Christian love and nurture that North Carolina Baptists are 
making possible through this ministry. We believe, therefore, that our 
Baptist people will want to have an ever-increasing part in so worthy a labor 
of love in the Master's Name. We know that the Lord will not fail us, and 
we also believe that our people will want to be as faithful as possible. 

Respectfully submitted, 
James H. Weaver, Sr. 

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Among church supported agencies, North Carolina Baptists are fortu- 
nate to have one of the finest programs in the nation for the care and devel- 
opment of dependent children and for strengthening and supporting family 
life. This is an application of the teaching and example of Christ in His 
earthly ministry. More than 1200 children and their families are served 
annually. 

The Children's Homes, through a variety of quality services, is recog- 
nized as a family service agency. This is made possible by well trained and 
professional staff who provide leadership for group care programs, foster 
home care, family services, consultation with churches in pre-school programs 
and planning for higher education of children who have been in care. This 
program unfolds on six campuses and through the work of regional case- 
work centers throughout the State.

ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 25 

More requests for services are now coming to the Baptist Children's 
Homes than at any time in our previous history. All agency beds are filled 
and all available money is being utilized. We, too, have been caught in the 
rising costs of living and in an inflationary economy. A wider variety of 
quality services are being demanded to meet the needs of children who are 
the products of today's complex society. Present economic conditions make 
it necessary to have additional operating income with which to maintain 
the current program before any further expansion of services can be con- 
sidered. 

Friends of the Children's Homes, in Western North Carolina, have 
responded generously to the Founders and Builders Program to raise funds 
with which to establish the Broyhill Home to serve children in Western 
North Carolina. Sufficient funds have been given and pledged to purchase 
the land, to prepare the site and to construct the first two cottages for chil- 
dren. When the campus has been completed provision will have been made 
for four cottages for children, a multi-purpose administration and activities 
building and a home for the superintendent. With the support and co- 
operation of Baotists and other friends of the Homes another ministry is 
being developed in Asheville. A home in which to serve unwed mothers 
and their offspring will be opened during the fall of 1969. 

By the use of designated gifts and bequests from individuals and 
families, significant progress is being made in the long range plans for 
upgrading of facilities. Two cottages are now under construction at Mills 
Home. A recreation building and an infirmary at Kennedy Home and two 
cottages for children at the Broyhill Home are scheduled for construction 
during the next year. 

The contribution of our Baptist people through the Cooperative Pro- 
gram, the Thanksgiving Offering and special gifts are essential to our con- 
tinued operation and are received with deep appreciation. An increasing 
number of friends are finding a rewarding stewardship opportunity through 
the establishment of trusts for the Homes and by means of wills and estate 
planning for the needs of dependent children. Members of the staff are 
available for consultation in estate planning and the preparation of wills.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION 

The assets of The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc. have now 
reached beyond the one million dollar ($1,000,000) mark, including trust 
funds and real estate. Since the reactivation of the Foundation, around 1962, 
the total assets have increased from $350,000 to the present excess of slightly 
over one million. This is positive proof that the Baptists of North Carolina 
have discovered that the Foundation is really a service arm of the Baptist 
Convention of N. C. 

As mentioned above, the Foundation renders a service to: (1) God, 
(2) individual Baptists, and (3) Baptist agencies and institutions. Every 
Baptist has an opportunity through his Foundation to provide for continuing 
stewardship in the agencies and institutions in which he has an interest. 



26 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

The Foundation has again this year put particular interest upon the 
making of wills. Several of our Churches have used the facilities of the 
Foundation to conduct Will Clinics and reports from these clinics indicate 
that they were most successful. We have also had an opportunity to counsel 
with many people concerning their own wills, and in some instances we 
have provided the information and direction necessary for inclusion of 
Baptist causes in their will. 

We have had a most successful year and can attest to the fact that the 
Foundation is on the move and is rendering service to individual Baptists in 
a most concrete way. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter Harrington 



DIVISION OF CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

The Division of Christian Higher Education of the Baptist State Con- 
vention functions chiefly through the Council. The Council membership is 
made up of the eighteen members of the Education Committee of the Gen- 
eral Board, seven college officio members include the president of the Con- 
vention, president of the General Board, General-Secretary Treasurer of the 
Convention, and the president of the state Woman's Missionary Union. 

Dr. Ben C. Fisher is director of the Division of Christian Higher 
Education and executive secretary of the Council. Miss Grace Youw is secre- 
tary to Dr. Fisher. 

North Carolina Baptists now have a university, four senior colleges, and 
two junior colleges: Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem; Campbell 
Senior College, Buie's Creek; Mars Hill Senior College, Mars Hill; Meredith 
Senior College, Raleigh; Gardner-Webb Senior College, Boiling Springs; 
Chowan Junior College, Murfreesboro; and Wingate Junior College, Win- 
gate. 

There are currently enrolled in all North Carolina Baptist Colleges ap- 
proximately 12,000 students. 

In these institutions there are more than 500 young men and women 
preparing for full-time Christian service. This includes those preparing for 
the gospel ministry, to be missionaries, educational directors, directors of 
church music, Christian college teachers, chaplains, and denominational 
workers. 

In each college catalog may be found a statement of Christian purpose. 
The Christian college operates on the basic assumption that apart from reli- 
gious commitment life can have no ultimate meaning. Jesus Christ is the 
foundation of all truth and provides the frame of reference in which all 
knowledge can be examined and used for the good of man and for the glory 
of God, and the two cannot be separated. 

The North Carolina Baptist college curricula provide courses in the 
study of Bible, Church History, and related subjects which give students 
new insights and commitments to the Christian faith. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 27 

All colleges have regularly scheduled chapel services which provide 
an opportunity for worship, meditation, scripture, prayer, music, and preach- 
ing. Baptist colleges are not only concerned with the special role of training 
the Christian vocational worker, but they are also concerned with teaching 
and training churchmen who will take Christian views and sympathies into 
any vocation which they enter. 

The Cooperative Program is the Baptist college lifeline. Administra- 
tions, faculties, students, trustees, and alumni are deeply grateful to North 
Carolina Baptists for this support. The Baptist College Day offering has 
become another significant means of financial support to our Baptist colleges, 
and each church is urged to participate.

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The year 1969 has been one of the most significant in the 136-year 
history of the BIBLICAL RECORDER. True, we cannot point to any spec- 
tacular gains in circulation, but each week the RECORDER is read by almost 
300,000 North Carolina Baptists in some 90,000 homes. For almost a century 
and a half the RECORDER has played a vital role in the life of our con- 
vention and state, and it will continue to do so. 

Our pages this year have carried a variety of reports of the activities of 
Baptists all across the state. Early this spring membership in our 3,454 
churches passed the one million mark — an historic milestone. We also carried 
numerous stories and reports of the progress of the Crusade of the Amer- 
icas. The first half of this year, of course, saw much of the news interest 
focused on the General Assembly. Possibly more than any other assembly 
to day, this year's session was of vital importance to Baptists and other 
Christians across our state. Because of this importance, the RECORDER 
gave special emphasis to reoorting moral and social issues being considered 
by the legislature. Our readers responded in marvelous fashion, making the 
impact of the churches felt throughout the state. 

Whenever something significant was happening among North Carolina 
Baptists, our readers were aware of it. We hope to offer expanded coverage 
in the future and will always strive to improve our effort. We want to be 
good stewards of the trust North Carolina Baptists have placed in us. 

Naturally, we hope that this stewardship will be rewarded with more 
participation in leadership in our churches. The RECORDER should be in 
every Baptist home. 

We will continue to speak the truth in love.

ASSOCIATIONAL MISSIONS REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

In September 1967, the Executive Committee of the Alexander Baptist 
Association recommended to the Annual Session that the Missions Com- 
mittee be authorized to proceed in seeking some part-time or full time help 



28 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

in the Associational Missions Program. The Annual Session approved this 
recommendation on October 11, 1967. 

In trying to fulfill the request of the association, your Missions Com- 
mittee has made the following steps: 

1. Submitted a request to the Division of State Missions in Raleigh 
for financial assistance. We were assured that financial help in 
the amount of $1200 to $1600 would be allocated when an as- 
sociational missionary was acquired. 
On January 10, 1968, The General Board of the North Carolina Baptist 
State Convention approved an appropriation of $1500.00 for Alexander 
Baptist Association if and when the Association could locate a missionary 
on the field. This appropriation, combined with a S2,000.00 allocation in 
our association budget would give us 53,500.00 for part-time Mission work. 
As of October 1, 1969 the Missions Committee has no names to recom- 
mend for this position. Your Missions Committee will continue to make 
quarterly reports to the Association Executive Committee concerning this 
matter. 

We regret that Mrs. Kenneth Kerley, our promotional Secretary for the 
past year, found it necessary to submit her resignation to the Association 
Missions Committee and the Association Executive Committee, effective 
October 31, 1969. She is entering full-time employment. We wish to express 
our appreciation to Mrs. Kerley for her dedicated and untiring work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Marion Powell, Chairman 

TRAINING 

The highlight of our training program for 1968-69 was the Central 
Training School held at East Taylorsville Church, October 7-10, 1968. The 
emphasis for the study was music. Local teachers and two teachers from 
outside the association led in a most inspiring and enjoyable week. In the 
eight classes there were 117 enrolled from 11 of our churches, with an 
average attendance of 90.

Emilyn Wagner 

DAILY VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS 

Any church that does not include a Daily Vacation Bible School in its 
program is forfeiting one of the most important facets of its ministry. 

Nothing is more effective in teaching children proper respect for God's 
House, God's Word and how to study it, the place of giving in worship, 
and the church and missionary programs of our denomination. Almost 
every school results in professions of faith as children feel freer to take this 
step when surrounded by others of their own age than with a congregation 
of grown-ups looking on. 

Realizing the importance of the Daily Vacation Bible School, the Alex- 
ander and Rocky Face Associations began in January to make plans jointly 
for the schools to be held during the summer. Representatives from these 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 29 

associations attended the clinic at Wingate College and brought back very 
valuable information and materials. A clinic for the two associations was 
held in March and was well attended by representatives from most of the 
churches. 

Reports from the churches show that 22 schools were held in the 
Alexander Association with a total enrolment of 2,140. Collections taken 
in the schools amounted to $883.39 for Missions, but more important 23 
children accepted Christ. 

As all materials will be new and different in 1970, preparations for the 
schools will require more time and study. Begin early and be prepared to 
have the best Daily Vacation Bible School in the history of your church 
next summer. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Marvin Childers 



SEMINARY EXTENSION 

Enrichment is a term often being used to describe added material and 
resources for certain church programs. Seminary Extension offers such an 
enrichment to our churches. Bettering our understanding of God's work, and 
labor is always helpful. We are deeply grateful to those Pastors who will 
take time from their heavy schedules to study and teach the many subjects 
offered. There is need of better participation by the entire Association. 

Our center of study this past year was held at the Bethlehem Baptist 
Church. The study offered was for Sunday School Teachers. The Book taught 
was TEACHING FOR RESULTS, by Findley Edge. The Rev. Oliver C. 
Price taught the study. There were nine enrolled. 

Mrs. J. D. Whisnant, Mrs. Eugene Merideth and Mrs. Jimmy Chapman 
will be the committee directing the Seminary Extension this coming year. 
We want to give them our full support.

Marvin H. Willis, Director 

CHURCH TRAINING UNION REPORT 

These are exciting days for Church Training. Many new ideas, new 
materials, and a new seriousness to our need for Christian training are com- 
ing to us through the Church Training Ministry. 

1. We had 3 churches represented in the Junior Memory Work 
Tournament, and 1 in the Adult Scripture Reading Tournament. 
This represented 1 1 people in one or more of the tournaments. 

2. Our association was represented in the regional tournaments by: 
Junior Memory Work: Dennis Walker, Terry Houpe, Loretta 

Walker, Julie Martin, Sara Martin, Kay Snider, Cherry Lail. 

3. We have 3 churches with an organized ministry of New Church 
Member Orientation; 11 churches with an organized ministry of 
Church Member Training; and 2 churches with an organized 
ministry of Church Leadership Training. 

4. A Youth Rally was held at First Baptist Church and "M" Night 
attendance was 300. 



30 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

We had 2 people from our association attending our North Carolina 
Baptist Assembly at Southport last summer for one of our Church Training 
assembly weeks, and 32 attended our Southwide Assembly at Ridgecrest. 

We have 1 1 Training Unions in our Association with an enrollment of 
1,050. Our goal for next year is 12 Training Unions with an enrollment of 
1100. 

May I urge each of you to study and stay up to date with current 
Training Union materials, especially The Training Union Magazine. This is 
essential in order to keep up with the larger ministry of Church Training. 

Also, may I thank each of you for your prayers, assistance, and support 
in carrying on the Church Training work. I would like to pledge to you my 
best during the coming year, and beg you to support and make use of the 
Church Training Ministries as a means toward a more effective Christian 
witness through the local church. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Marion Powell, Associational Director 

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

As we began our new year, we also had changes in the Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union organization which I feel will help and strengthen our work. 

Mrs. Blanco Childers and I attended the Associational Leadership Con- 
ference in Black Mountain. Also a number of our associational leaders at- 
tended a leadership clinic held at the First Baptist Church in Statesville. 

Mrs. Childers and I were asked to visit a number of the churches having 
a Woman's Missionary Union to help explain the changes which were being 
made. We also visited by invitation two of the churches in the Rocky Face 
Association. We visited Mountain Ridge Baptist Church to help them or- 
ganize a new W. M. U. 

The annual W. M. U. and Brotherhood get together was held with First 
Baptist in December 1968. After a covered dish supper, we had the privilege 
of having with us Mrs. Keith Edwards, one of our missionaries to Nigeria, 
to show slides and tell of the work they are doing in Nigeria. 

Our annual meeting was also held at First Baptist. Our speaker for this 
meeting was Rev. Dwight Fickling, who is a chaplain with the B. S. U. at 
the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. 

We along with the Brotherhood had a Children's Rally at the East 
Taylorsville Church with Luther Osmond from the State Brotherhood De- 
partment as speaker.

Marcella Hines, Director 

ASSOCIATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

Four quarterly meetings were held. At these meetings, reports were 
heard from the various organizations and the treasurers. Rev. H. I. Johnson 
was elected to fill the place of Doug Willett as Chairman of the Program 
Committee. The committee authorized the purchase and installation of an 
air conditioner for the office at a cost of $365.60. We approved an additional 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 31 

officer to be added to the list of officers — that of a Youth Director — to cor- 
relate all youth activities. The Budget and Nominating Committees report 
was approved for presentation to the Association. 

Two applications for ministerial scholarships was approved. We auth- 
orized the Missions Committee to apply to State Missions for aid to supple- 
ment the salary of an Associational Missionary, if one can be secured! A 
vacancy was filled on the Trustees and the Trustees were authorized to help 
replace pump burned out by lightning. The report of the Program Com- 
mittee was approved for presentation to the Association. 

A Constitutional change in the election of officers was discussed and 
approved and will be presented at the Associational Annual Meeting. 

The resignation of Mrs. Kenneth Kerley, our Associational Secretary 
was accepted. This is to become effective October 31. The Executive Com- 
mittee expresses their sincere appreciation for her faithful service.

Oliver C. Price, Moderator 

STATE MISSIONS 

The over all purpose of State Missions is to lead people to Jesus Christ 
and help develop the churches. New churches are given counsel and financial 
assistance upon request, and when the current budget will permit. Churches 
that are unable to support a full time program are encouraged to form a 
field of two or more churches in order to have a pastor live on the field, 
minister to them; and lead them to develop their own resources. 

State Missions provides training for Christian vocation through Fruit- 
land Bible Institute and an ever growing number of Seminary Extension 
Centers. In a new ministry State Missions is ministering to thousands of 
people in resort areas. State Missions reaches into our inner cities with 
needed Baptist Centers; into our military areas with help through the local 
churches and specialized ministries. There is limited Chaplaincy ministry in 
Correctional institutions. There is a thriving ministry to the deaf. There is a 
helpful ministry to other races. Help is given the churches in their own 
stewardship programs. State Missions offers help in the training of deacons, 
Sunday School leaders and teachers, and Brotherhood leaders. Many other 
services which can be extended by the Convention to the local churches are 
given at the request of the pastor or other recognized leadership. 

The ministry of State Missions is a cooperative one. It is usually given 
in cooperation with the local church. An attempt is made to always work in 
cooperation with the local Baptist Association. A majority of our Associa- 
tions are given financial aid through State Missions. Some State Missions 
projects are a cooperative financial effort of the Baptist State Convention, the 
Association, and the Home Mission Board. 

Your State Missions ministry is supported by cooperative program 
receipts and the special September offering for State Missions.

HOME MISSIONS 

We have come to the point in the life of our nation when our best is 
needed. In a society convulsed by assassinations, riots, and disorders, and 
other crisis, we are called upon to give our Christian witness in every area 
of human life. With the vast increase in population the Christian task in the 
homeland grows with each passing day. There are more than seventy-five 
million unchurched people in the U. S. today. 

Our Home Mission Board has a force of 2,385 missionaries serving in 
all fifty states, plus Panama and Puerto Rico. This program reported 114 
home fellowships, 108 new churches or church-type missions last year. 

Through Home Mission Board, forty thousand New Testaments were 
bought and distributed through mission program leaders, and almost one- 
half million scriptures in the Russian language was distributed in coopera- 
tion with the American Bible Society. Through these avenues you have help- 
ed to express Christian love and point people to Christ as their Savior and 
Lord. 

Your Home Mission Board seeks to help churches, associations, and 
state conventions in determining needs and opportunities and in finding 
ways to meet these needs. 

As we face the future let us pray that this agency may be used to 
develop in America a nation whose God is the Lord. Pray that America will 
become a Christian nation to a degree never yet true. God's word reminds 
us "Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord."

EVANGELISM 

The simultaneous revival meetings held last spring as a part of the 
Crusade of the Americas bore evidence, in some places across the state, of 
being genuine spiritual revivals. Where God's people sowed bountifully, they 
reaped gloriously. In our association the Crusade was a blessing to our 
churches. Thirteen churches reported a total of 71 additions by baptistim 
and 27 by letter. 

As we face the future in evangelism we should take note of what hap- 
pened this year where outstanding revivals were experienced. This will give 
some guidelines for future plans in evangelism. As observed across the state 
come of the characteristics were: 

1. In every church where an unusual revival was reported there had 
been an unusual prayer concern and prayer participation across 
several months on the part of some church people — usually the 
leaders. This definitely says something to us for the future. 

2. Some of the most powerful revivals in our state started among 
the young people of our churches. Young people are prominent 
in many places today ( mostly in worldly places ) , and it is en- 
couraging to know that when they offer themselves to God to be 
used in His purpose, as many are doing, that revivals break forth 
in the churches, this has taken place in several churches in North 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 33 

Carolina this year. It ought to be happening everywhere. 
In the light of what we have seen this year, here are some "musts" 
for the future: 

1. To seek earnestly to be completely assured in our hearts and 
minds that the only hope for us and all people is Christ — Christ 
as He and His Gospel are revealed by the Holy Spirit through 
the Bible, the inspired and inerrant Word of God. 

2. To purpose to engage daily in searching the Scriptures and in 
praying for spiritual revival in the churches. Some have made 
a beginning in this vital matter and all other Christians should 
join them and continue steadfastly therein. 

3. To proclaim faithfully "publicly and from house to house" (Acts 
20:20) the glorious gospel of Christ, and to make this purpose 
central in all church plans, programs and activities.

Doug Willett, Director 

MUSIC REPORT 

Job said, "He giveth songs in the night." It was a trying experience 
for Job, but he found comfort when he was able to sing. A song gives in- 
spiration to the singer and also to the hearer. Robert Lewis Stevenson was 
inspired to write many of his songs while listening to negro slaves sing. 

Singing is most important to the worship service. It brings partici- 
pation from all the congregation. God in His infinite wisdom gave every 
individual a voice with which to praise His name. The Psalmist has exhorted 
us to "sing a new song unto the Lord." 

Throughout the years, Baptists have always searched for better ways 
of presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to lost people. If we sing the right 
songs, in the right spirit, our music can be a most important part of every 
church service. The music program of our denomination has created a 
desire for better work in presenting the gospel through music. No church 
is too small for a Music Ministry.

James R. Lockee 

SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The aim of the Sunday School for the past year, as always, has been 
the teaching of the Bible. To this end every encouragement has been given 
to better preparation for teachers and workers in our Sunday Schools. Be- 
lieving that more people come together here than anywhere too study God's 
word we cannot stress too much the responsibility of those who teach. We 
urge the use of every facility in our churches and our Association to improve 
our teaching in our churches. 

We also have cooperated wherever possible in the Crusade of the 
Americas. Our Spring meeting, held at East Taylorsville Church, was used 
by the Evangelistic Committee for the purpose of promoting our own 
County Wide Crusade.

ANNUITY BOARD 

To meet the needs of retiring ministers, church staff members, and 
denominational employees, the Annuity Board has developed the Southern 
Baptist Protection Program to provide an adequate retirement income. As 
the inflationary trend continues, many churches and agencies are upgrading 
their retirement programs by contributing 10/V of total salary. The Annuity 
Board and state conventions heartily recommend this action. 

Response to the three-plan Protection Program was good during 1968. 
The Program includes: Plan "A," the basic retirement fund; Plan "B," the 
supplementary fund; and Plan "C," the variable fund. Response was good in 
the Life and Health Benefit Plans. 
HIGHLIGHTS OF 1968 

1. 4,451 new members in the Southern Baptist Protection Program 

2. 23,714 members now participating in Plan "A," 1,538 more than in 
1967 

3. 18,086 churches providing protection for their pastors 

4. 145 agencies providing protection for their pastors 

5. $173,863 given in relief grants 

6. $6,543,169 paid in total relief and protection benefits 

7. 3,106 applications for Health Benefit Plan, 1,677 net gain 

8. 790 applications for Life Benefit Plan, 134 net gain 

Our Association has 1 1 churches participating in Southern Baptist Re- 
tirement Plan. 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

When the word ''stewardship" is used, most of us begin to see dollar 
signs $ $! If we think of stewardship only in terms of money, we miss the 
mark in our concepts. Stewardship means responsibility — responsibility in 
all areas of life. We are stewards or trustees of our time, our talents and 
our abilities. The Christian attitude is that we are responsible beings and 
must one day give account to our Maker for all that God provides. 

The worship of God with tithes and offerings through our churches 
provides a way for expressing our gratitude for His blessings. 

Those of us who are privileged to leadership are dedicated to teaching 
and training in the Biblical doctrine of stewardship and try to give our very 
best to this ministry. 

Materials for informing our people are produced and distributed by the 
Department of Stewardship Development. R. T. Greene is Secretary and 
Mrs. Susan Cochrane is office secretary. 

Teaching and training in the Forward Program, Growth in Christian 
Stewardship and Simple Plans for Stewardship Development is the respon- 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 35 

sibility of Harold White and his associate, Cleve Wilkie. Mrs. Dorothy Smith 
is office secretary. Mrs. Smith is also office secretary for the Annuity Depart- 
ment, Guy Gain, Secretary. 

The distribution of films, filmstrips and other audio visual materials 
and a radio and television ministry is carried on by L. J. Morriss. Mrs. Ester 
Kidd, office secretary, is assisted by Mrs. Frances Riley and Mrs. Sylvia 
Neely in this work. O. J. Hagler is Director of the Division and Mrs. Lacy 
Coates is secretary. On your invitation, all of these stand ready to assist in 
every way possible. 

The Cooperative Program is the main channel for supporting World 
Missions, Christian Education, Social Services and an every expanding State 
Mission program. The goal for these causes this year is $6,750,000. 

A special State Missions offering goal of $250,000 is a challenge to all 
Baptist churches. Other approved special offerings — The Lottie Moon Christ- 
mas offering, the Annie Armstrong Easter offering, The Heck-Jones Mem- 
orial offering, the Hospital Special on Mother's Day, the Thanksgiving 
Special for the Baptist Children's Homes, Christian Education on Father's 
Day and the offering for the Homes for the Aging in February — all com- 
bine to an amount that will approach ten million dollars in 1969- 

As dedicated Christian stewards, will you try to lead your church: 

1. To use a stewardship program to help subscribe your own church 
budget. 

2. To increase the percentage of the offering plate dollar given through 
the Cooperative Program. 

3. Give a percentage of your regular offering through the Cooperative 
Program rather than a fixed amount. 

You are a partner in the world-wide work of our Lord as you give 
through your church each month to the Cooperative Program. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Blayne E. Hollar 



FOREIGN MISSIONS 

At the close of 1968 there were 2,371 missionaries under appointment 
by the Foreign Mission Board for service in 69 countries. During the year 
247 new missionaries were appointed including missionary associates and 
missionary journeymen. 

Worldwide evangelism has been a major emphasis. The Philippine 
Crusade in November and December resulted in more than eight thousand 
decisions, which over six thousand were professions of faith. This is just 
a small fragment of what happened in all of our missionary efforts in the 
past year. 

But the field is, still white unto harvest and the laborers are few, "Pray 
ye therefore the Lord of harvest, that he will send forth laborers into His 
harvest." I believe with all of my heart that a church that doesn't emphasize 
missions has no right to exist.

BROTHERHOOD 

We regret that we are not able to report progress in the growth of the 
Alexander Associational Brotherhood as a whole, but we are thankful for 
the fact that many of our individual churches are doing a wonderful job of 
this work. 

Your Director has had the opportunity to attend two state meetings 
(one at North Wilkesboro and two days at High Point) in training for the

We beg of all our people that they will be much in Prayer for our

HISTORY OF ANTIOCH BAPTIST CHURCH 

Probably a mile from here, the New Meeting House, of which Elder 
Edward Teague was pastor, burned down about twenty five years after it 
was built. The organization disintegrated and Antioch Church was consti- 
tuted out of the old church with 13 charter members in 1826. The name 
Antioch was brought by members from a church in Orange County. 

William White, Sr. hewed the heart pine logs with which the first 
church was erected. It was built high enough to have a gallery with entrance 
by stairs on the inside. The land on which the church stands was entered 
about 1781 by William Austin and when the church was organized, his 
youngest son Nathan Austin deeded five acres of beautiful forest grove for 
use of the church. 

Antioch's membership was 257 and the Pastor was paid $57.75 for 
the year when the Alexander Baptist held their 1888 session here. At the 
next session held here in 1905, the association had 19 churches with 125 
additions for the year. In 1926 we met with Antioch on the 100th an- 
niversary of the church. Altho this was over forty years ago, the report of 
Spirituality of the Churches says "We deplore the lack of spiritual power 
in the individual life and in the church life of our day. From Maine to 
California comes the cry of spiritual death and the lack of spiritual power." 
That sounds like the sermons we are hearing from our pastors today. 

We met here in 1924, 1949, 1958 and last in 1963. Since last meeting 
here, much improvement has been made to the physical equipment. The 
grounds and cemetery were landscaped. The Adult Department was com- 
pleted and a new heating system installed for the santuary. The Pastorium 
was completely renovated and enlarged making it spacious and more livable. 
About a year ago the sanctuary was painted, new drapes and carpet added. 
Miss Cecile Austin presented the church with a Hammond Organ in October 
1968. 

Marvin Willis has served as pastor since January 1967. The church 
began "Growth in Christian Stewardship" in October 1967 and the budget 
has doubled. Antioch has been known for being missionary minded and 
yiVl c /( of the budget is designated to missions. 

The church has a special ministry to Senior Citizens of the community. 
Once a quarter these are brought together for a meal and fellowship. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 37 

HISTORY OF LEBANON BAPTIST CHURCH 

On March 29, 1884 Lebanon Baptist Church was organized with 41 
members. S. D. Barnes was the first pastor. In the minutes of the Thirteenth 
Session of the Brushy Mountain Association held at Three Forks Church, it 
states that the new church Lebanon joined that Association. There were 25 
white ministers and 1 colored minister present. 

This church is three years older than the Alexander Baptist Association 
which was formed in 1887 by churches which pulled away from Brushy 
Mountain. Lebanon was one of the 13 churches which joined together to 
start Alexander Baptist Association. 

The first time Alexander Baptist met at Lebanon was a four day session 
held in 1900. The church membership was listed as 57 males and 86 females 
and preaching was only on the fourth Sunday. The Historian wrote that in 
the session, good feeling and brotherly love prevailed and all the discussions 
and religious exercises seemed to be with an earnest desire for the spread of 
the gospel in the earth. 

The next meeting here was in 1911. The moderator was absent and 
by coincidence John B. Echerd and John L. Gwaltney, my two grand- 
fathers took charge. The attendance was not as large as some but the 
Historian commented that "The Church is remarkable for its good Sunday 
School, splendid singing and for the spirituality and harmony existing 
among its members." 

In 1956 was the last time we met here. The history said the auditorium 
was built in 1943 and since that four Sunday School rooms were added 
making the building in the shape of a "T." A new piano-organ combina- 
tion has been bought for the sanctuary. Additional Sunday School rooms have 
been built in the basement and a pavillion built on the grounds. The yards 
and cemetery have been improved with grass and cement walks. A beauti- 
ful parsonage was built in 1965 adding much to the value of church property. 

Pastors who have served since last record are Jeffie Daniels, Paul Mc- 
Alpine, William Baldwin, A. A. Smith. Roy Jester came as pastor in February 
1968.

// is with hearts of deep gratitude that we the people of 
Alexander Baptist Association dedicate these Minutes of the 
Eighty-third Annual Session of the Alexander Baptist Associa- 
tion to Rev. W . O. Warren, our Associational Clerk for the 
past thirteen and one-half years. 

We remember "without ceasing your work of faith, and 
labor of love." 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



CONSTITUTION OF THE 
ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

PREAMBLE: We, the messengers of Missionary Baptist Churches in the 
County of Alexander, State of North Carolina, do hereby propose to establish 
and maintain the order and rules of a district Baptist Association in con- 
formity to the following plan: 

Article I. NAME 
The name of the body shall be the Alexander Baptist Association. 

Article II. PURPOSE 

The purpose of this Association shall be to counsel together for the 
enlargement and strengthening of God's Kingdom and for the promoting 
of unity and growth among the churches related to the Association. To this 
end the Association will cooperate with the North Carolina Baptist State 
Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention and their agencies in the 
work of Missions, Christian Education, and Social Service. 

Article III. MEMBERSHIP 

Section 1: The Alexander Association shall be composed of the 
pastor and three messengers from each Missionary Baptist Church that vol- 
untarily cooperates as the Alexander Baptist Association, the general officers 
of the Association, chairmen of standing committees, and the pastor and 
messengers from any church that may hereafter be recognized as a cooperat- 
ing church by the Association. 

Section 2: A cooperating church shall be defined as follows: 

a. One that shares the missionary spirit of the Association, 

b. Elects and sends messengers to the annual meeting, 

c. Contributes financially to the work of the Association each year, and 

d. Provides an annual report to the Association upon the forms pro- 
vided by the Associational Clerk. 

Section 3: Any church may sever its working relationships with the 
Association at any time it chooses. Likewise, the Association may refuse to 
continue recognition of a church as a cooperating church when for two 
consecutive years without sufficient reason that church does not meet the 
stipulations stated in Section 2, or when for any other reason, approved by 
the Association in annual session, a church is considered by intent and ac- 
tion to be a liability to the fellowship and work of the Association. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 



Section 4: Churches desiring to relate themselves to the Association 
in its work and fellowship may do so by adhering to the following procedure: 

a. Make application to the Associational Fellowship Committee for 
recognition as a cooperating Baptist church, such application to be 
made at least three months before the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation. 

b. Furnish the Fellowship Committee the information required in the 
annual letter of churches to the Association, plus such other informa- 
tion as the Committee may request for properly evaluating the ap- 
plication. 

c. Upon recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and approval 
by the Association in annual session a church may come under the 
watch care of the Association for a period of one year. At the end 
of one year of watch care relationship and upon recommendation 
of the Fellowship Committee and approval by the Association, a 
church may be recognized as a cooperating church eligible to all 
privileges and responsibilities of a church cooperating in the work 
of the Alexander Association. 

d. During the period of watch-care relationship a church shall meet 
the stipulations of Section 2 above. 

e. In the case of new churches which anticipate a working relation- 
ship with the Association, duly elected representatives of the pro- 
posed church shall consult with the Moderator and Fellowship Com- 
mittee of the Association relative to the need for another church, its 
location, and its proposed ministry. Upon the recommendation of 
of the Fellowship Committee the Executive Committee shall author- 
ize such other assistance as is requested by the church or deemed 
necessary by the Executive Committee in developing a cooperating 
Missionary Baptist Church. 



Article IV. MEETINGS 

Section 1: The Association shall meet annually on Wednesday after 
the third Sunday of October and continue for two days sessions or longer, 
as seems wise to the Committee on Order of Business — subject to the ap-

mined at the previous session. 

Section 2: The associational year shall begin on October 1 and con- 
tinue through September 30. 

Section 3: The Executive Committee shall act for the Association 
between annual sessions. It shall meet quarterly and at any other time

In 1964 the Executive Committee of the Alexander Association voted 
unanimously to request all churches to consider giving 3 r /r of regular of- 
ferings for Associational Mission work. The Finance Committee would urge 
again that each church try to set this goal for itself. The above item 15 is 
based on the amount it will take to retire the debt on the Missionary Office. 

In addition to the $1,200.00 appropriation in the suggested budget, 
all unused buget funds would be used to help retire the debt on the 
missionary office.

that classes be taught on an unmixed basis.

BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Under the impact of the life, ministry and teachings of Christ and 
under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, North Carolina Baptists, eighty five 
years ago launched a Christian ministry of child care. This has grown con- 
siderably and is widely recognized for its qualities of service and pioneering 
spirit. Sons and daughters of the Children's Homes are scattered throughout 
the world. They are actively engaged in all walks of life and are making 
a significant contribution to the uplift of mankind as a result of their early 
Christian training made possible by North Carolina Baptists and other 
friends. 

The Children's Homes, through a variety of quality services, is recog- 
nized as a family service agency. This is made possible by well trained and 
professional staff who provide leadership for group care programs, foster 
home care, family services, consultation with churches in preschool programs 
and planning for higher education of children who have been in care. This 
program unfolds on seven campuses and through the work of regional case- 
work centers throughout the state. 

Broyhill Home at Waynesville and the Maternity Home at Asheville 
are scheduled to open within the next few months extending our ministry 
into Western North Carolina. In the East, Odum Home at Pembroke con- 
tinues its vital ministry and Kennedy Home at Kinston is entering its 
intensive development program. Our ministry in Piedmont North Carolina 
focuses in Mills Home at Thomasville, Greer Home at Chapel Hill, and 
Wall Home at Wallburg. 

We want you to become thoroughly acquainted with the Baptist Chil- 
dren's Homes of North Carolina. The more you know about the agency, the 
more you will appreciate its daily work and ministry. You would be thrilled 
to see the progress our boys and girls make as they emerge out of difficult 
and unfortunate circumstances over which they have no control. Through 
this ministry you can find personal joy and excitement in helping people. 

The contribution of our Baptist people through the Cooperative Pro- 
gram, the Thanksgiving Offering and special gifts are essential to our con- 
tinued operation and are received with deep appreciation. An increasing 
number of friends are finding a rewarding stewardship opportunity through 
the establishment of trusts for the Homes and by means of wills the staff 
are available for consultation in estate planning and the preparation of wills. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and members of the staff of the 
Homes are dedicated to a program of child care that will merit the undivided 
loyalty and support of our people and that will be worthy of the blessings of 
our Lord. We convenant with you to face the future as we have the past; to 
offer Christian nurture to Children in distress in the name of Christ our 
Savior and Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. I. Johnson

HOME MISSIONS 

The Home Mission program will continue indefinitely as one of the 
higher priority activities of the Southern Baptist denomination. The Board 
has frequently adjusted methods and adapted to situations that are changing 
constantly. At the same time, it has remained true to its task of seeking to 
lead men to God through Jesus Christ. 

As a seed planted grows, flowers, and produces other seed, so Christ 
planted within one's heart, is shared with another, then another, and another. 
Your support through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong 
Offering makes possible the ministry of more than 2,200 home Missionaries 
who are busy planting the seed of the gospel in hearts of people who are 
spiritually hungry. 

The concern for making men disciples of Jesus Christ is the undergird- 
ing theme of all Home Missions activity. 

Another major area of Southern Baptist Home Missions work is the 
ministry to the people called language groups. "Every Nation under Heaven" 
(Acts 2:5 ) has come to the United States and a total witness to our nation 
must include these internationals. There are more than 35 million people in 
the United States who speak a language other than English, or who are 
closely identified with the culture and customs of one of these groups. They 
need to know Christ personally. 

Needs and opportunities have sky-rocketed. The number of unchurched 
persons today is about ten times the total population in the field served by 
the Board 125 years ago. There are many moral and social problems that 
need Christian solutions. 

With all the strife and unrest in our land, we need to pray that every 
Christian and Church will reconsider our Mission and renew our commit- 
ment to help claim "our land for Christ." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Charlie Caldwell 



TRAINING 

The Central Training School was held in the East Taylorsville Baptist 
Church, October 13-16, 1969. In the six classes held 79 were enrolled, with 
an average attendance of 59, from 9 churches. 

Rev. Jack Wilder, of Greensboro, led the adults in a challenging study 
of personal soul-winning. An interesting recreation and drama class for 
Intermediates was led by Mel Daughty of Shelby. Classes for children, Nurs- 
ery through Junior, were taught by local ladies.

CHURCH TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Our Church Training continues to progress satisfactory throughout our 
Association. We now have ten Training Unions in our association with an 
enrollment of 1,020. 

We had one church represented in the Junior Memory Work Tourna- 
ment. From the regional tournament came four state winners. They were 
Janet Lail, Mark Hollar, Eddie Caldwell and Hugh Hollar. 

There were four churches that had courses of training during the year. 
Ten churches have organized ministry of Church Member Training. We had 
four people attending North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Southport and two 
people attending Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly during Training Union Week. 
Special programs on drugs were presented at two churches. A Youth team 
from Greensboro led our association in a Youth Weekend Revival in the 
Hiddenite High School. Our annual M-Night was held at Mt. Herman 
Baptist Church. 

With the new literature and organization in Church Training, we are 
excited at what is going to be done in the training program of the church 
during the coming year. All Directors of Training are anticipating a great 
year in the service of our Lord.

ASSOCIATIONS MISSIONS 

Upon the resignation of Mrs. Kenneth Kerley as promotional secretary 
at our Annual Meeting last October, the Associational Missions Committee 
submitted the name of Mr. Walter Harrington to serve in this capacity. In 
addition to maintaining the Associational Office two days a week, Mr. Har- 
rington has attended numerous state and SBC conferences, clinics, and meet- 
ing. He has been very active in keeping our pastors advised of new changes 
and developments. 

Your Associational Missions Committee has made no particular effort 
during 1969-70 in securing a full time associational missionary. There are 
still not sufficient finances to do this. However, we have kept in constant 
touch with Mr. Howard Ford, Director of Missions for N. C. Baptists, in the 
hope that when local finances are adequate that we will be in a position 
to receive state help. 

We wish to take this occasion to thank Mr. Harrington and others who 
have made definite contributions to our Associational program. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Marion Powell 

MUSIC 

"Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." 
Psalm 150:6 God has given each one of us the challenge to go forth and 
spread the gospel to every person in the world. 



26 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

What better way of carrying out this command do we have than that 
of music. To me the music ministry of a church is a most vital part. I am 
certain that for many people, music has brought them to a saving knowledge 
of Jesus Christ. 

With some new ideas this year there are a number of ways that a good 
music program could be developed easily. For example, there are eight 
music periodicals now. These are ( 1 ) The Church Musician ( 2 ) Choral 
Overtones ( 3 ) Choral Tones ( 4 ) Opus Two ( 5 ) Opus One ( 6 ) Young 
Musicians ( 7 ) Music Makers and ( 8 ) The Music Leader. In addition to 
these fine magazines there are recordings for all of the music magazines 
except Music Makers. These recordings can be a most valuable asset to the 
director as well as the accompanist. These periodicals are for the small 
church as well as the larger churches. 

This year the music program has four main goals to achieve: 

1. Teach Music 

2. Train persons to sing, play and lead music 

3. Provide music in the church and community 

4. Provide and interpret information regarding the work of the 
church and denomination. 

In the association this year we have worked closely with the youth, as 
well as offered our help to churches interested in starting a music program. 
All churches were invited to participate in the folk musical, TELL IT LIKE 
IT IS. Approximately seventy-five (75) young people joined voices to pre- 
sent this musical. The musical was presented at First Baptist Church, An- 
tioch, Stony Point, and Bethlehem. The latter part of July forty members of 
the group went on tour in three states, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wash- 
ington. Many persons received Christ and had their spiritual lives strenthen- 
ed as a direct result of this music. My own life was strengthened by having 
had the opportunity of working with such a wonderful group of people. 

As we join efforts in a new associational year, may each of us vow to 
do all we can for Christ this year. It is my prayer that even more can be 
accomplished for God through music this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Terry D. Childers 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

More than ever before, North Carolina Baptist need a dependable source 
of information. It is difficult these days to get an honest and accurate report 
on important issues. 

In some cases, half truths and rumors are circulated, some of them de- 
signed to embarrass and ridicule Baptist. Since it takes so long for truth to 
catch up with error, some of these impressions in people's minds are never 
corrected. This makes progress and unity more difficult. 

For 137 years, North Carolina Baptist have had the Biblical Recorder 
as a dependable source of information. Week by week it goes into the homes 
of nearly 90,000 families, striving to speak the truth in love. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 27 

In the past year, the Recorder was pleased to have had a part in the 
election of Dr. Carl Bates of Charlotte as president of the Southern Baptist 
Convention. A Recorder editorial endorsing him was considered a factor in 
his election on the first ballot at Denver. It is an honor to have the con- 
vention president from our state. This is just one example of the influence 
the Recorder has had in the past year. 

Looking to the future, the Recorder promises to continue its fight 
against liquor by the drink, even in the face of strong opposition from 
those who are pushing for a greater flow of liquor in our state. If your 
church is not sending the Recorder to every home, try doing this for the 
coming year so your members can receive the full story on the 1971 General 
Assembly. 

Your church would not think of trying to carry out its mission without 
literature devoted to the Sunday School, Church Training, WMU, Brother- 
hood and all other church organizations. The Recorder is just as important 
and should be in the budget just as this literature is. The cost is only 4c a 
week, a penny less than a post card. Your church is the loser by not taking 
this step. Won't you do it this coming year? 

In our association we have five churches that include the Recorder in 
their church budget and five have regular clubs that receive the Recorder.

EVANGELISM 

One of the great needs of Alexander Association is to put into practice 
what we already know. One — people, many hundreds are lost. Two — the 
Gospel of Christ is the only way of Salvation. But finally, they will never 
know unless you and I begin to take Jesus seriously and "Go — Tell." 

The churches need to look on the fields that are white unto harvest 
and then let the pastor, deacons, teachers and every member become laborers. 
Until we do, people will go to hell one by one and we are held responsible.

BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

There is good news from our Baptist Hospital that the Hospital deficit 
has been reduced by large Medicare adjustment payments covering the cost 
of care provided in 1969. The deficit is now under the $1 million and it is 
hoped that it will be further reduced by about $100,000 anticipated for other 
service already rendered. 

The big problem now is caring for those who cannot be certified for aid 
and are not able to pay for all the care needed. This is where the churches 
must help. 

The Mother's Day Offerings are now $21,000 more than they were at 
this time last year, and we are grateful for this. Thirty-five Associations gave 



28 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

more through August than for the entire year of 1969. We are hoping for 
$350,000 by the end of the year. 

Alexander Association was not one of those thirty-five above. In fact we 
are almost $800.00 short of last year. However all churches have contributed 
something. Last year four churches failed to give anything. May this never 
happen again. There are so many who need help. Again we thank every 
church and every individual who contributed.

HOMES FOR THE AGING 

God has blessed our Homes for the Aging through all of our nineteen 
years, and during the past year in a very special way. We acknowledge His 
goodness and thank Him for every manifestation of His love. We also want 
to express sincere gratitude to our Baptist people for their increased love 
and concern for the 195 dear elderly people to whom we are ministering in 
our five Baptist Homes — Resthaven, the Hayes Home, and Nursing Care 
in Winston-Salem; the Albermarle Home, in Albermarle; the Hamilton 
Home, in Hamilton; and the Yanceyville Home in Yanceyville. 

An urgent appeal was made to our Baptist people before our offering 
in February to help us reduce the alarming deficit in the operation of the 
Homes. This plea was heard, and the offering, of $168,349-34, from July 1, 
1969 through June 30, 1970 from our Baptist Churches, has exceeded all 
other offerings in previous years. How grateful we are for this increase. We 
want to urge our people, however, to continue giving liberally to our Homes 
and to remember that we are still confronted with the staggering cost of 
living and the great need to strengthen the total economy of the Homes as 
we try to move forward in developing and expanding this vital ministry 
to the aging. 

For example, even though our offering reflects an increase over the 
previous year, this increase will only take care of approximately half of the 
additional amount necessary in operating the Homes for the coming year, 
due to inflationary pressures. 

Of great interest in our Development Program is a proposed new ad- 
dition to our present Nursing Care Unit. Judge and Mrs. William M. York, 
of Greensboro, North Carolina, have offered a gift of $80,000.00 to the 
Homes for this purpose, contingent upon the Homes raising an additional 
$80,000.00 by September 1, 1970. If this proposal is fulfilled, 10 to 12 
additional rooms would be made available, with accommodations for 20 to 
24 people, and bringing our total nursing care capacity to 80 beds. We 
appeal to Baptist people to pray for the success of this very special project 
in the care of our elderly sick. 

There is no greater security for an older person than that of the Chris- 
tian nurture and love offered in our Baptist Homes, and we thank the Lord, 
and our Baptist people, for this ministry. We shall continue to look to Him, 
and to our people, on behalf of these to whom Christian love means so 
much, in the faith that our needs will be supplied. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 29 

I would like to thank each church for their love gift to the Homes for 
our Aging People.

ANNUITY 

Last year more people received more benefits from the Annuity Program 
than ever before. The thirteenth check was the largest in the history of the 
program. 

Consider this: the average person who works in the industrial and 
business employment today has fringe benefits which include: 

1. Retirement benefits 

2. Hospital insurance 

3. Life insurance 

4. Profit sharing or investment plans. 

Through the Annuity Board of our Southern Baptist convention, our 
people who serve the Lord in churches, associations, institutions and agencies 
can be given: 

1. Retirement programs 

a. Protection Plan on first $4,000 of Salary. 

b. Age Security or Variable Annuity for rest of Salary. 

2. Life Insurance — Group Life 

3. Hospital Insurance — Health Benefit Plan. 

These should be in the budget as tax free, fringe benefits just as other 
people have them. 

Such a program will be good protection for the church and the families 
in cases of sickness, death and retirement. 

I certainly recommend and believe that every church should make pre- 
parations for their pastor and his family in case of death, disability, and re- 
tirement through the Annuity program. Presently 15 churches in the Alex- 
ander Association are participating in this program.

WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

We are adjusting to the "New Look" in Woman's Missionary Union. 
In January I went with other leaders from our Association to Asheville for 
the Clinic "Shaping the Seventies." In March we held a clinic at East Tay- 
lorsville and I was thrilled with the eleven churches that were represented 
in the Woman's Missionary Union Clinic. 

Mrs. Fred Milstead and I attended the Literacy Workshop at Camp 
Mundo Vista and hope to have a literacy program in our county. Mrs. Ray- 
mond White, Misses Lucy Echerd, Sharon Little and I attended a workshop 
for Associational officers at Mundo Vista in September and urge any of the 



30 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

churches needing help that they call on us at any time. 1 have been visiting 
a number of our churches to explain the "New Look." 

We were privileged to have Rev. Jack Gentry. Missionary to Taiwan, 
with us on September 28. Since our Foreign Mission Study is on Taiwan 
in December this will be a great help in planning our Mission Study. In 
May. Miss Bernice Popham. oar St.ue Girls in Action Director, met with 
some of the leaders from the Churches to hear about the changes in Girls 
in Action. Then in June Miss Linda Warren, our state Baptist Young 
Women's Director met with us telling about the New Young Adult work. 

Mrs. Gilmer Cross from Lexington, was the guest speaker for our An- 
nual Meeting, which was held with Bethlehem Baptist Church.

DAILY VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS 

What ;s more thrilling than the sight of a crowd of eager boys and 
girls gathering at the church for Daily Vacation Bible School! They want 
to learn, and in a day when the teaching oi the Scriptures and moral training 
is at a low ebb in the boxes and almost nonexistent in the schools, it be- 
hooves the church to take advantage of every opportunity to teach these 
children. 

Daily Vacation Bible School provides one of the church's greatest op- 
portunities to give its children instructions in morals, conduct, and church 
doctrines as well as factual knowledge of the Bible. The pillars of our Amer- 
ican way of life — Patriotism, education, morality, and religion — are being 
eroded by the termites of Communism. The Daily Vacation Bible School is 
one of the best places to try to counteract these destructive influences in the 
minds of our youth and to instill in their place sound principles of righteous, 
useful, happy living. 

Representa.ives from the Alexander Association attended the Daily 
Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College in January and passed what 
they had learned on to the workers from the churches held at the First 
Baptist Church in Taylorsville, April 30. 19~0. 

Reports from the churches show that 22 schools were held in the Alex- 
ander Association with a total enrollment of 2,2 . Collections for missions 
amounted to S90'->.09, and 19 young people accepted Chrisr. 

Respectfully submirred, 
Mrs. Marvin Childers 

BROTHERHOOD 

In our Alexander Associarion we have three Brorherhood organizations 
with fifty men enrolled, four Crusader chapters with twenty eight enrolled 
and three Pioneer Chapters with eighteen enrolled.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

The Executive committee met four times in regular sessions of the fifth 
Monday in November, March and June and on August 24. 

In November Rev. Marion Powell, Chairman of the missions committee 
reported that the committee had employed Walter Harrington as Promo- 
tional Secretary on an interim basis until the Executive committee meeting. 
The committee approved this appointment making it permanent. Brother 
Powell recommended that the Association purchase a new mimeograph 
machine as soon as money is available. In March it was voted to pay for 
cleanup at East Taylorsville after the "Shaping 70's" Clinic. 

In August Rev. Oliver Price moved that $50.00 be approved to pay on 
expense of an Asbury College student. A motion was made and carried that 
since Brother Warren, our Association Clerk, was not able to fullfill his 
duties of clerk due to his health, that Mrs. Kenneth Kerley, the incoming 
clerk, take over the duties of clerk as of now, and that she be paid not less 
than $2.00 per hour for the time taken to get the report ready for our 
annual association meeting. Brother Price moved that Brother Warren be 
sent a letter, stating that Mrs. Kerley would take care of the minutes and 
also express our appreciation for his faithful work. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL 

We are told year after year that the Bible is the Best Seller among all 
Books. Yet we have not seen the evidence of its popular impact upon 
our country. Neither have our churches revealed the kind of strength a 
Bible based faith should generate during such stressful times. The Bible, 
though popular, seems to be an unknown Book. A. V. Washburn, our Sun- 
day School Director of the Southern Baptist Convention, says: "It is easier 
to praise the Book than to study it. It is easier to read it than to learn it. 
It is easier to preach and teach it than to live it." 

"The work to be done for the church by the Bible Teaching Program" 
(The Sunday School) is four fold. 

1. To teach the Biblical Revelation. 

2. Reach Persons for Christ and Church membership. 

3. Perform the Functions of the church within its constituency. 

4. Provide and interpret information concerning the work of the 
Church and Denomination. 

In launching the new organization and presenting the new materials 
and methods to accomplish the above mentioned tasks the Southern Baptist 
Convention made available clinics to train associational leadership. These 
trained leaders were to return and train the leaders of the local churches. 
Your Director attended the "Launching the Seventies" Clinic at Asheville, 
and a Southern Baptist wide Clinic at Ridgecrest. Prior to our own Associ- 
ational Clinic, the Reverend Grady Blakely and Mr. R. M. Grant received 
training in a clinic at Elkin to assist individual churches in setting up their 
organization and ordering their literature. 



32 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

An Associational Clinic was held for Pastors and Sunday School Di- 
rectors on the book, "Administering the Bible Teaching Program of the 
Church". This book was to prepare these men to direct the new organization 
and help them understand the changes being made. This was attended by 
eleven Pastors and their Directors. At this clinic two specific Sunday School 
needs were expressed as having priority for the coming year. A space walk 
of our churches by a representative from our state Architectural Department, 
and a clinic on outreach. These are being planned. 

So as to train the Sunday School workers for "Launching of the Seven- 
ties" two clinics were held simultaneously at Mt. Herman and Hiddenite 
Baptist Churches. The new department books were taught to train these 
church workers in the new organization and materials to be used. 

Changes are taking place everywhere. Especially has there been a grow- 
ing indifference to Bible Study. Our Southern Baptist Convention has sought 
to help our churches get a better job done with years of study on how to 
better teach and reach more people in Bible study. They can only offer the 
churches proven tools. We as churches must learn how to use the better 
methods to teach God's changeless Word in a changing world. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Marvin H. Willis 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

Hundreds of churches, including every size church, increased Cooper- 
ative Program giving last year. One thousand and seventy-three churches 
increased Cooperative Program giving by ten percent or more over the 
previous year. This increased sharing will enable all to have a greater part 
in the healing of the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting 
the imprisoned and preaching the gospel to the poor. Congratulations are 
in order to every individual and church making this ministry possible. 

Helping churches advance in stewardship and missions is one of the 
basic aims of your Stewardship-Cooperative Program Chairman, General 
Board member, Superintendent of Missions, Moderator, and the Division of 
Stewardship Promotion of the Baptist State Convention. Do you need help 
with Annuity and Insurance for your pastor and/or other staff personnel, 
Week End Stewardship Revivals, Growth in Christian Stewardship Program, 
The Forward Program, Study and Preaching Program, Tithers Enrolment 
Week, Planning a Budget, Youth in Stewardship Program, Family Steward- 
ship Program, Visual Aids, Communications, Developing a Special Steward- 
ship Program, Principles of Family or Church Budgeting, Setting up Better 
Financial Record Keeping for your church or leaflets and other information 
on the Cooperative Program, State Missions, and Family or Church Finance? 

The Cooperative Program is the main channel of supporting World 
Missions, Christian Education, Social Services, and ever increasing State Mis- 
sions programs. The goal for these causes this year is $7,000,000. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 33 

As dedicated Christian stewards will you try to lead your church: 

1. To use a stewardship program to help subscribe your own church 
budget? 

2. To increase the percentage of the offering plate dollar given 
through the Cooperative Program? 

Your associational officers and your Division of Stewardship Promotion 
personnel are delighted to offer friendly service to aid your stewardship 
program, Cooperative Program sharing, visual aids or annuity requests. On 
your invitation we stand ready to assist in every possible way.

STATE MISSIONS 

New frontiers are opened by your love. Our Missionaries bring hope to 
those who are often deprived of the finer things of life. Through State 
Missions you are reaching out and helping these people. 

OUTREACH is one of our mottos and goals for the 70s. Our State 
Missions reaches out to the deaf, those in prison and institutions, the stranger 
within our gate, the Japanese and other foreign wives of our American 
service men at Camp Lejeune, Fort Bragg and Cherry Point. 

A new day is dawning in the life of many churches and in the hearts 
of many people because of the Fruitland Bible Institute where additional 
training is provided for pastors already in service. Through State Missions 
you are supporting this vital ministry. 

We can do our part in State Missions through dedicated money for our 
special State Missions offering and the Cooperative Program. Christ is re- 
deeming men, women and children through your state missionaries. May we 
pray fervently and give generously to this great cause in our state. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Kermit Patterson 



FOREIGN MISSIONS 

"Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Isaiah 6:8. There are 
something over 2,500 missionaries under appointment by the Foreign Mis- 
sion Board in some 70 countries. But the field is still white unto harvest. 
These 2,500 are a very few among the teeming millions throughout the 
world who have never heard of our Christ. Pray ye therefore to the Lord 
of the harvest that He will send laborers into His harvest. 

But how can they be sent unless we send them? And how shall we 
send them? By our regular Foreign Missions offering, the Lottie Moon 
Christmas offering and the Cooperative Program. Will you resolve now that 
your largest Christmas gift shall be to your Christ through the Lottie Moon 
offering? 



34 ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION - 

The chief concern of course is to win people to Christ, that they may 
have Eternal life, but there are many other things that Foreign Missions do. 
There are about 1,300 Schools in over 40 countries, twenty some hospitals 
and 90 clinics. Book stores and reading rooms furnish Christian literature. 
There are good will and community centers, homemaking courses and Bible 
study clubs. 

All this and more you can have a part in through your giving. Let us 
give generously that those so much less fortunate than we may have a better 
life here and Eternal life beyond this veil of tears. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Ross Carrigan 

POPLAR SPRINGS CHURCH 

Poplar Springs Church was organized in 1872, whereas Alexander 
Baptist Association began in 1887 making this church 15 years older than 
our Association. 

The Brushy Mountain Association was organized in 1871 and was made 
up of churches in several counties including Caldwell, Wilkes and Alex- 
ander. In old minutes, I found that in 1877 the Brushy Mountain Associ- 
ation met at Union Church in Caldwell County and Poplar Springs joined 
that year. 

An interesting question discussed there was "Is it right to hold a 
member of the church in fellowship, who will not pay his debts?" The 
Association ruled that "A member who can but will not pay his debts should 
be excluded." Another question found in that minutes asked how long a 
church should bear with a member who was able to go to other public 
gatherings but not able to attend church. The Association ruled that he 
should be admonished, and if he persisted, excluded. 

When the Alexander Association was formed in 1887, Poplar Springs 
became a charter member and reported 75 members. When the Alexander 
Association first met here in 1903, church membership had grown to 110. 
The church history was written by W. S. McLeod. 

In 1948 it met here for the second time and church membership was 
185. The church history was brought up to date by A. C. Payne. 

We met here last in I960 and church membership was 231. The 
minutes show that the church buildings had just been enlarged that year. 
Brother W. O. Johnson was then pastor and served the church for 23 years. 
He was succeeded in September 1961 by the present pastor Devon Dyson. 

Mrs. Roy Rogers has served most efficiently as Church Clerk for 29 
years and never misses the Association. 

In 1962, 2*4 acres of property across the road was purchased for a 
cemetery. It was completed with paved driveway in 1965. The church 
parking lot was paved in 1964. 



ALEXANDER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 35 

The church was free of debt in October 1966 and a note burning service 
was held with the Rev. Ernest Bumgarner as the speaker. Poplar Springs had 
asked for Mr. Bumgarner's ordination and he had served his first pastorate 
here from Sept. 1912 to Sept. 1915. 

The sanctuary was air-conditioned in 1967 and a new organ and 
piano were also installed. The new porch and vestibule with rest rooms were 
added in late 1969. 

Lucy Echerd, Historian 

H5DDENITE BAPTIST CHURCH 

Hiddenite Baptist Church was organized in 1915 by twenty-two charter 
members, mostly from Sulphur Springs and Bethel Baptist Churches. 

The Alexander Baptist Association has met here in 1949, 1955 and last 
in 1962. The minutes of 1949 does not give a history of the church but 
my father wrote the history for the 1955 minutes which includes the names 
of the charter members, pastors and clerks to that time. 

In the 1962 minutes the history was brought up to date and showed 
membership of 183 and total gifts to all causes over $12,000. Since then 
there has been a large increase in giving and the church membership is 
now 223. 

When we met here last, the Rev. Walter Howell was the pastor. He 
and his wife Louise were of great service to the Association until July 1968, 
when he left to take additional training and to serve another church. 

Brother Alvin Walker served as Interim Pastor until March 1969 when 
the present pastor, the Rev. Eugene Warrick was called. 

In 1969, Mr. and Mrs. Leach Goodin gave the church a lot for a new 
parsonage and a beautiful dwelling valued at $30,000 was built. It was 
completed and dedicated in May 1970. 

When the old parsonage was vacated, it was converted into use for 
Sunday School classes and a fellowship hall. A new organ has been installed 
in the sanctuary and the church has been painted.
